If your lifelong dream was to become a ninja, it might finally come true.

Currently hiring is Hattori Hanzo and the Ninjas, a group of ninjas working since 2015 to promote tourism in Aichi Prefecture, the “Home of the Samurai.”

The opening is for 6 ninjas — anyone over 18 who will willingly devote a year to the secretive life of a ninja. Only in this case, the ninjas have to work stealthily in the spotlight.

Duties include performing in ninja gear at various events, welcoming and helping tourists, and promoting Aichi Prefecture on the media. Ninjas will likely have to be on-duty during the weekends, but since even the most loyal ninjas need to rest once in a while, they’ll at least be getting one day off every week.

Ideal candidates will have good acrobatic skills — major bonus if experienced in the martial arts, or is able to do backward handsprings. Being able to communicate well with others is also a must, and although it would be helpful to have knowledge of Japanese, it isn’t necessary. They do, however, plan on infiltrating bigger cities and other countries overseas.

Aichi ninjas mostly work from 9am to 4:30pm, which is pretty awesome considering they’re being paid 180,000 yen (1,600 USD) a month, with bonuses and benefits.

Anyone who can work from May 1st, 2016 to March 31st, 2017 is free to apply, and international applicants can apply by sending a resume via email.

If they like what they see on your resume, they’ll call you in for an audition, which will consist of an interview and an opportunity to demonstrate your athletic capabilities as a future ninja.

Auditions will be held at the end of March, though if you are invited, you’ll have to pay for the trip yourself.

Applications are open until March 22nd, so visit their website and Facebook for more information!
