CRUMBS! Wednesday Mar 11

Conferencing in Japan, or attending any roadshows hosted by Japanese tourism organisations?
It may be difficult to find anyone there, given the news that a group of mayors and governors from around the country is looking to highlight the ninja in tourism.
The group has set up a ninja council in the hopes of giving tourism a boost, the Japan Times reports.
Apparently, former Tourism Agency head Hiroshi Mizohata said ninjas are something that “always” come up whenever Japanese tourism is promoted abroad.
The publication reports that the council’s plan involve local authorities teaming up with tourism agencies to highlight the ninja, and will provide information on its website about this most stealthy of martial arts practitioners, as well as host events to boost ninja popularity – like the ninja needed it.
