Japanese Schoolgirl Ninja Jumping Off Buildings

It's summer in Japan. Students are starting to get out for vacation. Maybe they can spend their free time chasing each other around and jumping off rooftops.

This video (well, ad) was shot in the idyllic city of Atami—apparently on a smartphone—as the two kids chase each other around, using ninja tricks like makibishi and kemuridama to escape.

The clip is filled with stunts. Some of them look like camera, wire-work or CG trickery, while others look rather dangerous.
