Ninja is attractive and mysterious, but the facts about Ninja are misunderstood seriously even by Japanese people. We interviewed real Ninjas, and they taught us how a real Ninja should be.

Collaborating with Iga-school Ninja Museum at Mie prefecture in Japan, we discover what a true Ninja should be and break through the commonly held images of Ninja.
