WAttention Ninja - Recruitment


What is WAttention Ninja?

You may already know Ninja from comic books and animations, right?

What you might not know is that unlike the Samurai who live for battle, the majority of Ninja were informants, whose primary job was to collect intelligence.

WAttention is now recruiting foreign students and residents who want to collect and spread information about Japan as WAttention Ninja.

Here's what our current WAttention Ninja got to experience:

I was invited to go to Komatsu, a quaint city in Nagano prefecture. I learned so much about the culture and history of the city as we toured centuries-old historical places. We even visited a 1300 year old functioning ryokan!

I was sent to Hokuto, off the beaten track in Yamanashi Prefecture. I loved everything about it: the views, the food, the culture. I was toured around all the major attractions and even got to try riding a Segway. It was just such an amazing experience.

I just came back from Togakushi, the legendary home of Togakure Ninja. I was toured around a ninja-themed museum and amusement park. My favorite part of the experience was I got to try soba that was served by a modern ninja!
