The Mie University set up the world's first research centre devoted to the ninja in 2017 and opened a graduate course a year later.

It is located in Iga -- 350 kilometres (220 miles) southwest of Tokyo -- a mountain-shrouded city once home to many ninja.

Yuji Yamada, a professor of Japanese history at the university in charge of the ninja centre, was surprised at Mitsuhashi's devotion to the task.

"We provide historical classes and courses on ninja skills. But I didn't expect him to engage to this extent" like a real living ninja, Yamada said.

To enrol, students have to take an exam on Japanese history and a reading test on historical ninja documents.

"About three students enrol every year. I think there's demand," the professor said.

"We get many inquiries from overseas but I have to say one thing: This is a course to learn about the ninja, not to become one."
