Perhaps The Most Luxurious Ninja Shuriken Ever? You Could Even Be The Owner Of One!! 2016-03-08 Tue 2016-03-08 Tue When you think Ninja, one of the first weapon you would think of is "Shuriken". To commemorate the launch of Japan Ninja Council (an organization that collect and send out information for the purpose of vitalizing tourism and local economy through Ninja), beautiful shurikens were presented via crowdfunding. There are two types of shurikens available: "pure silver" and "pure gold". They were both handmade by Matsumoto Kisho, the oldest medal manufacturer in Japan. In Japan, owning and using shurikens will violate the law. However, these shurikens do not have proper blades, enabling anyone in Japan to purchase them.
