A Japanese town is offering to pay people to move there to become a ninja.

According to Maxim, the small Japanese town, Iga, is the birthplace of the ninja. However, they're seeing a steady decline in their ninja population. The reason? Younger generations are leaving the small town for big cities. The town has a population of roughly 100,000 people.

The best part? You could get paid to be a ninja in the town of Iga. Maxim reports that ninjas in Iga make anywhere from $23,000 annually to $85,000 annually. Yes, you could get paid $85,000 to be a ninja in Japan. If you're really tired of the Hudson Valley, this sounds like a stellar opportunity.

Now let me clarify, you won't be killing evil drug lords in the middle of the city. You'll actually be a ninja performer for tourism purposes, according to Maxim.
