International Ninja Research Association Foundation Ceremony

The Fascination of Ninja:Ninja from Multiple Perspectives

Summary

As the Olympic Games in Tokyo get closer, worldwide interest in Japanese culture becomes even more intensive than it has been before. The Ninja are the aspect of Japanese Culture that probably draws the most amount of attention from all over the world.

Recently, research related to Ninja and Ninjutsu has become more widespread. Since 2012 Mie University has put a lot of effort into both Ninja and Ninjutsu research as well as publicizing information about Ninja.

In July of this year (2017) Mie University has established an International Ninja Research Center, with the aim of expanding research into Ninja and making it one of the basic components of the culture of Mie Prefecture and the Culture of Japan in general.
The next step is the establishment of an International Ninja Research Association.

The aim of the association is to assemble a wide range of people interested in Ninja and to conduct interdisciplinary research. This international community will encourage the cordial, mutual exchange of opinions. We also plan to hold the annual meetings and to publish a bulletin.
International Ninja Research Association Foundation Ceremony will be held as stated below. We cordially invite you to attend.
