Ninja is said to be the ancient warrior originated in Japan. Nowadays its transnational emerging has been seen globally, even in Sokoto, northern Nigeria where I have conducted field research for Nollywood kungfu film since 2001. In this article, I trace some transnational process of ninja representation outside Japan and consider ways to transform global image into a localized ninja/ninjoji of Sokoto.

For many Japanese, it seems to be difficult to assume that growing success of Nollywood would be in relation with some “SFX” techniques for mysterious teleport and magical transforming, which resonate so much with the audiences in local contexts. This article examines recent 31 Yoruba Nollywood movies which were selected randomly from the online guide of the AM Yoruba. 22 contents out of the 31 include mysterious or magical scenes and 6 are peculiarly involved with “money rituals”. 9 are without any magical setting and more than half of them focus on domestic problems which are familiar with Japanese audiences. But many contents with magical scenes, too, raise issues for family relationships. The article explores common features and differences between the two kinds of contents and suggests that those movies which contain mysterious settings would dramatize ordinary issues with very localized idioms although they reflect harsh situation or crisis of everyday life.

Nollywood is one of the key issues in the contemporary African media worlds. Since 2001 I have conducted my research on video culture in Sokoto, Northern Nigeria. In this article I trace some developmental processes of popular market literature and video-movie among the Hausa-speaking people, and try to analyze kungfu video-movies produced in Sokoto, as resulting from watching Hong Kong movies for several decades.

消防団は郷土愛護をかかげる義勇の組織とされ、地域防災の要となるボランティアリーダーと認識されている。本稿はある消防団の民族誌的報告であり、10年あまりにわたる参与観察をもとに断片的な語りや記憶をつなぐ試みである。消防団をめぐる4つの「間」から、現代の消防団の位相を浮かび上がらせようとする。地域の期待に応えられない制度的な矛盾や日本社会の変貌が団員の負担を増やす現状を描き出す。
