If I could be anyone from the past, I think I’d choose to be a ninja because I have always been fascinated by them, having read a series of books on them. What I wouldn’t give to be an agent of espionage and sabotage and to infiltrate prohibited areas in stealth! Oh! To be able to possess ninjutsu techniques so that people wouldn’t know that I was coming or going. Well, Mie Prefecture in the center of Honshu, Japan is the birthplace of ninjutsu, a traditional form of martial arts.
AEON launched the inaugural Mie Prefecture Food & Tourism Fair at AEON Bandar Utama yesterday, the fair is also simultaneously at AEON Mid Valley from now till 14th September 2014.
