Ninja vs Samurai. Things you should know about feudal Japan and current New York:
Ninja people appeared in the 15th century in Japan, in the Iga Province and the adjacent area around the village of Kōga. Although antecedents may have existed in the 14th century.
A Ninja was a mercenary. In feudal Japan, his functions also included espionage and sabotage.
Ninja were absolutely different to samurai strict rules about honor and combat.
“I am the number one Ninja and I have killed all the Shoguns in front of me.” By Shaquille O’Neal.
Following the unification of Japan in 17th century, the ninja faded into obscurity. And by the time of the Meiji Restoration (1868), the tradition of the Ninja had become a topic of popular imagination and mystery in Japan.
Some Ninja legendary abilities include invisibility, walking on water, and control over the natural elements. As a consequence, their perception in western popular culture in the 20th century is often based more on such legend and folklore than on the historical spies.
