The mysterious nature of the ninja has long captured popular imagination in Japan, and later the rest of the world. Ninjas figure prominently in folklore and legend, and as a result it is often difficult to separate historical fact from myth. Some legendary abilities include invisibility, walking on water, and control over natural elements. The ninja is also prevalent in popular culture, appearing in many forms of entertainment media
Ninja were people in black costumes who had extraordinary skills and abilities. The origin of ninja isn't clear, but it's said that might be around 6th century. In the 15th century, ninja flourished as spys who helped feudal lords and samurai warriors with special tools. Shuriken were sharp hand-held weapons ninja used to throw. There were mainly two styles of ninja: Koga ninja which is originated in Shiga prefecture and Iga ninja which is originated in Mie prefecture. Ninja houses looked ordinary houses, but there were hidden mechanisms so that they could hide secrets.
There are fun places in Japan where visitors can experience ninja techniques and secret mechanisms in ninja houses. Some of them offer ninja schools and classes.
