From the Event Organizer:
You will choose your favorite kimono and hakama, change into a samurai costume, and learn how to use a sword from a samurai.
You will learn how to draw a sword, hold a sword, swing a sword, and retract a sword. After learning basic sword usage, they practice a simple chanbara (sword fight).
Then we will try to exterminate bad guys to the music! You can take videos with your smart phone, take pictures with the samurai, and have a great samurai time.
The teachers are authentic teachers who have appeared in major Japanese dramas and movies.
Since you have come all the way to Japan on a trip, you will have a wonderful experience of Samurai culture!
The dojo has many weapons on display, including swords and spears. You will also find armor on display. Samurais are waiting for you in a space that does not seem modern.
