This is the viral moment an imaginative little boy uses a simple ninja sticker on a transparent sheet to create an exciting scene on the window as he enjoys a train ride.
The incident was filmed on the Tokyu Den-en-Toshi Line in the central Japanese capital Tokyo and the footage was shared on Twitter by netizen ‘Fuki_fuki’ where it has gone viral with 6 million views.
The social media post proves that children are just as happy with a sticker and a healthy dose of their own imagination than being glued to tablets or smartphones.

According to local media, ‘Fuki_fuki’ makes handmade toys and the running ninja idea may have come from her.
In the footage, the youngster is seen positioning a sheet of see-through plastic on the window as the train is about to leave the station.
With a running ninja character stuck in the middle of the transparent sheet, the boy makes it ‘sprint’ along the platform before he moves the cellophane to make it leap into the air like a superhero.
At one point, another train passes the window and the imaginative youngster makes his ninja character ‘bounce’ along its roof.
