    You may have heard about Japan's demographic crisis, but the country is facing another, lesser-known crisis as well.

    Japan does not have enough ninjas.

    Enough to do what?

    Also, maybe they should open their eyes and look harder.

    Well according to your missus it seems you have managed the bit about slipping in and out without her noticing, she wouldn't have minded but she was awake!

    TOKYO - A Japanese city has been left fighting off wannabe ninjas after a news report on local labour shortages that suggested it wanted to hire the traditional assassins went viral.

    The western city of Iga was featured in a report by American radio station NPR this month about Japan's depopulation and labour shortage problems.

    The report said Iga was trying to capitalise on its history as home to ninjas by building a new museum focused on the warriors, but was struggling to hire staff, including ninja performers.

    In its reporting, NPR said ninja performers in Japan can earn anywhere between US$23,000-US$85,000 (S$31,000-S$115,000) a year.

    But a number of copycat reports by other media or viral sites went with less nuanced headlines such as: "This town in Japan will pay you an US$85,000 salary to train as a ninja".

    By Wednesday, at least 115 aspiring assassins had contacted the city and its local tourism association, puzzled Iga officials said.
