You're partially right about the ninjas.
When I was in Japan I got to visit some lovely ancient castles, and they have a cool defence in the floors where when you step on a board, it rubs
against a tiny thing which makes low sqeaky sounds, it almost sounded like music... and it was so that anyone sneaking in to assasinate would be heard
It was pretty crazy we were told to try to cross without making the sound... admittedly I got halfway but then it sounded lol...
