Lastly, the owner talks about the history, trivia and the way of life of a ninja.
My dad had tools which were like shuriken (throwing stars) and fukiya (blowguns), so I used to throw them at a tree or blow them when I was little. But doing them again as ninja skills was completely different, and it was fun!
