Kunoichi cover girl

Shoninki 1988

Via Robert Grunzanki – cover from the 1988 ninjutsu book Shononki, possibly the only female cover from the 80’s craze books.

That mission gear is pink or purple, as she’s actually a tour guide / theme park character from the Iga Ueno ‘ninja village’ tourist attraction in Japan. The late artist and student of ninjutsu Skydancer has some nice shots of this and related attractions here.
