Japan’s Iga city ‘does not need ninjas’ after reports it was hiring
What a mixup!
NPR had posted a summary which said that Iga “is facing a serious problem, there aren’t enough people training to be ninjas, not even for $85k a year”.
“That characterisation was incorrect,” an NPR spokesman told the BBC.
But those reports led at least 115 ninja hopefuls from 23 countries to contact Iga officials, enquiring about possible jobs.
