Also, opening from October 2nd in the Shinjuku area of Tokyo is the Ninja Shinjuku.
A ninja (or shinobi as they were known in historical documents) was a covert agent or mercenary in feudal Japan. They were tasked with waging irregular warfare methods such as espionage, sabotage, infiltration, assassination and guerrilla warfare … methods that were deemed dishonorable and beneath the samurai caste who observed strict rules about honor and combat. The ninja proper appeared in the 15th century as a specially trained group of spies and mercenaries.
Ninjutsu is the strategy and tactics of unconventional warfare, guerrilla warfare and espionage purportedly practiced by the shinobi (commonly known outside Japan as ninja).
