Honto ni

This weekend we were looking for somewhere to take Bill, Aaron’s friend from the U.S., on a day trip. After a long time trolling wikitravel, Aaron and Bill decided that it would be cool to go to ninja village for the day.

The best thing about the day, for me, was listening to what the small kids had to say. While Bill and Aaron were doing the ninja training course, one of the little kids looked at the leader, dressed in a ninja costume and said,

“Honto ni ninja desu ka?” (Are you really a ninja?)

“Honto ni.” (Yep. Really)

It was just so funny and so innocent and the employee didn’t even bat an eye. I guess it is likely that this wasn’t the first time that he fielded this question.
