AICHI, Japan – Hattori Hanzo and the Ninjas Office, which has become world-famous for its recruit advertisement “Full-time ninjas wanted”, has started the “Ninja Airport” project on a large scale in collaboration with a local airport.
What do you go on an overseas trip for? Do you want to go as far away from your usual workplace as possible? Or do you want to have an experience totally different from what you are accustomed to?
The Chubu Centrair International Airport, an entrance to the Chubu region of Japan, has started the “Ninja Airport” project on a large scale.
A lot of attractions are offered, including objects related to ninjas and ninja videos you can see in many places in the airport, ninja costume fitting experience and the booth where you can actually try throwing shuriken (Ninja weapons). But the greatest attraction is official ninjas of Aichi Prefecture, “Hattori Hanzo and the Ninjas”, stationed in the airport.
The team was formed to promote tourism in Aichi, and they greet incoming tourists, perform in a Ninja show and provide tourist information.
The ninjas are strolling around the airport. Of course you can take photos with them. Such photos will be a precious piece in your collection.
“The world’s first non-Japanese ninja”
If you are not proficient in Japanese and are concerned that you may not understand what the ninjas are saying, please be reassured.
The world’s first non-Japanese ninja belongs to the team, and he is a native speaker of English.
“Aichi: a convenient place for sightseeing in Japan”
Aichi Prefecture is located in the heart of Japan, and you can easily reach famous tourist spots such as Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka from Aichi.
In addition, Aichi itself has a lot of places to see. You will be surprised to hear that it has more temples and shrines than Kyoto; actually it has the largest number of temples and shrines of all the prefectures of Japan.
The seasons of “cherries” and “autumnal colors” in Japan are loved by many people around the world, and temples and shrines will emphasize the beauty of such seasons to the maximum.
In addition to ninjas, samurai will be waiting for you in the Nagoya Castle.
This is quite an extraordinary experience you could not have in other castles.
