The Steve Jobs Ninja Story

In a recent issue of the SPA! magazine, Apple Inc CEO Steve Jobs was supposedly stopped at the Kansai International Airport after Ninja throwing stars were found inside his luggage. He was on his way home after a vacation in Kyoto before he was prevented from bringing the weapons into his private plane. Due to this experience, Jobs reportedly said that he would never visit the country again.
But, Apple quickly denied the tabloid report. According to company spokesman, Steve Dowling, “Steve did visit Japan this summer for a vacation in Kyoto, but the incidents described at the airport are pure fiction.” He added, “Steve had a great time and hopes to visit Japan again soon.” 

On the other hand, a spokesperson at the Kansai airport, Takeshi Uno, confirmed that last July, a passenger of a private jet was prevented from boarding for packing shurikens or Japanese throwing weapons. The passenger had to discard the weapons since the airport have common boarding arrangements for commercial and private jet passengers.
