From the Paper:

"By the 17th century, the ninjas had become a thorn in the side of many Japanese Shoguns, and a great war began to eradicate the ninjas. Thousands of lives were lost during the war, and ninja activity did not continue on very much longer. They only officially operated until the 17th century in Japan, but the myth and legend of the ninja has always been an important part of Japanese history and the arts. They still tell ninja stories on the Kabuki theater stage. Ninjas also operated schools throughout the country, and wrote books about their weapons, tactics, and even recipes. "And so...the ninja moved from the battlefield into the imagination, and have remained there ever since" (Nepstad, 2001)."
