Iga [EE-gah], a small Japanese city -- and the birthplace of the ninja -- is facing a serious problem. There aren't enough people training to be ninjas.
Not surprisingly, Iga depends on tourism to keep their economy rolling. But because there’s a shortage of ninjas, they’re reaching out and inviting people to train to be ninjas, at a yearly salary of $85,000, which is actually more than real ninjas used to earn in medieval Japan. (BroBible)
