(Newser) – Japan is about to make some childhood dreams come true. That's because the country's Aichi prefecture is currently hiring six full-time ninjas, Quartz reports. According to the BBC, a neighboring prefecture has a highly successful ninja museum, and Aichi wants to bring in tourists of its own. The ninja positions are open to anyone 18 or older—you don't even need to speak Japanese—provided they simultaneously love tourism and history while being physically fit and boasting impressive acrobatic skills. It's important to note, as the BBC points out: "A track record of killing people for money would not help your application." Aichi's professional ninjas will put on regular performances and give media appearances while bringing in about $1,600 per month. Applications are due by next Tuesday.
