What is House of Ninjas about?

The 8-episode Japanese series was created by American director and writer Dave Boyle (Big Dreams Little Tokyo) exclusively for Netflix.

It tells the story of the Tawara family, one of the last great ninja clans, and one that had retired after a past incident forced them to reassess their priorities.

Now, however, they must return to the shadowy missions they used to carry out, as a crisis is lurking that could massively damage not only the Tawara family themselves but also Japan.

House of Ninjas stars Kento Kaku, Yosuke Eguchi, Tae Kimura, Kengo Kora, Aju Makita, Nobuko Miyamoto, and Riho Yoshioka.

All eight episodes of the action thriller are now available to stream on Netflix.
