Here's what you say about us...

Hiroko Yoda and Matt Alt are a couple who run a Tokyo-based translation company that specializes in producing the English versions of Japanese video games, comic books and literature. They are the co-authors of Yokai Attack! and Yurei Attack!, both originally published by Kodansha International and with new expanded editions from Tuttle Publishing.

"Written by Hiroko Yoda and Matt Alt. This book contains numerous stories of real-life ninja exploits from Japanese history. The accounts run the gamut from solo assassins and operatives to femme fatales and shogun warlords. Includes manga-style drawings and photos." -Black Belt Magazine

"I wish I'd had this beautiful book back in 1983 when Kevin Eastman and I created the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles-it would have helped a lot! At the very least, the 'ninja stuff' in our comic book would have been quite a bit more authentic." -Peter Laird, co-creator, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

"A must read for ninja fans. And the illustrations are brilliant! I wish there was a Japanese edition of this book." -Takashi Okazaki, creator of Afro Samurai

"A very enjoyable and well researched book that de-mystifies the ninja of legend." -Stan Sakai, creator of Usagi Yojimbo

"Subterfuge! Assassinations! Secret weapons! Super-powers! Authors Yoda and Alt dig deep into Japanese history, folklore, and pop culture to ring back a saga overflowing with insight and action." -Patrick Macias, author, Tokyoscope: The Japanese Cult Film Companion
