Tokyo, Japan - Looking for a new job?

Why not become a Ninja?

Believe it or not, a central province in Japan just put out a help wanted ad for six Ninjas.

But these "assassins" won't be taking on bad guys. Instead, they'll be killing it on stage to lure eyeballs to Japan.

See, they'll be on a mission to boost tourism for Tokyo's 2020 Olympic Games.

Job duties for the year-long contract will reportedly include taking pictures with tourists, weapons demonstrations, and acrobatic stunts.

Pay for being a modern-day Ninja warrior is about $1,600 a month, though that might include some additional benefits.

Because performances will sometimes occur in English, would-be warriors don't have to be Japanese in order to apply.

But turtles need not apply.

This is one whacky job that really requires you to come out of your shell!
