A 63-year-old engineer is Japan’s ‘last ninja’ – Yahoo! News.

I was always fascinated by Ancient history and especially secretive organizations and groups that perfected a set of skills over the centuries and were always shrouded in mystery.

A 63-year-old former engineer may not fit the typical image of a dark-clad assassin with deadly weapons who can disappear into a cloud of smoke. But Jinichi Kawakami is reputedly Japan‘s last ninja.

As the 21st head of the Ban clan, a line of ninjas that can trace its history back some 500 years, Kawakami is considered by some to be the last living guardian of Japan’s secret spies.
“I think I’m called (the last ninja) as there is probably no other person who learned all the skills that were directly” handed down from ninja masters over the last five centuries, he said.
