Netflix is shining the spotlight on Japanese culture with House of Ninjas. The series introduces audiences to the clandestine world of modern-day ninjas, blending mystery, action, and a thrilling storyline.

In its debut week, House of Ninjas shot to the #2 spot on the Global Top 10 Non-English TV List with 4.2 million views. It also ranked among the Top 10 in 71 countries. The compelling narrative and unique cultural perspective have made it a hit, which is a testament to the universal appeal of the story and its characters.

Ninjas, known as shinobi in Japan, have long been an integral part of Japanese culture. These covert agents of the feudal era were renowned for their skills in espionage, guerilla warfare and assassinations. Their influence was felt deeply in the political landscape of the time, and their legacy continues to be part of the cultural fabric of modern Japan.

The series imagines a world where ninja clans still exist, but are retired and living a normal life. But when a rogue clan threatens to shake up Japan, one family of former ninjas dust off their old skills to save the day.

Kento Kaku brings to life the character of Haru, a talented ninja from the Tawara family. Despite his exceptional abilities, Haru struggles with a traumatic past rooted in revenge. Together with an all-star cast, including Yosuke Eguchi, Tae Kimura, and Kengo Kora, they tell the story of this undercover family trying to blend into modern society. So, what happens when they discover that the threat they're up against is another ninja clan?

Tune into House of Ninjas to find out, now streaming exclusively on Netflix.

Cast: Kento Kaku, Yosuke Eguchi, Tae Kimura, Kengo Kora, Aju Makita, Riho Yoshioka, Nobuko Miyamoto, Tomorowo Taguchi, Tokio Emoto, Pierre Taki, Kyusaku Shimada, Mariko Tsutsui, Tenta Banka Based on a story by: Kento Kaku, Yoshiaki Murao, Takafumi Imai Director: Dave Boyle Writer: Dave Boyle, Masahiro Yamaura, Kota Oura, Kanna Kimura Executive Producer: Yoshihiro Sato (Netflix) Producer: Akira Kanbe Production: TOHO Studio Produced by: Netflix
