BBC reports Japan’s Aichi prefecture is looking to hire the ninjas who will be paid 180,000 yen, roughly $1,600 a month.

The ad says applicants need to excel in physical fitness and acrobatic skills with the job aimed to “promote warlord tourism.” No killing or combat experience is required.

Other duties include “PR work” on radio and television and performances. The ninjas will be used mostly for promotional purposes with performances at the historic Nagoya Castle.

BBC added that another prefecture has a ninja museum, which includes history lessons coupled with stunt work by trained ninjas, and it has been very popular.

Anyone 18 or older can apply. The deadline is March 22.
