“Samurai” is a Japanese word well-known all over the world now. Of course you have heard it before, right? Well, what kind of image do you have of a samurai?
You will get to know samurais, who charm people all over the world by their proud and beautiful way of living, in Kyoto!
At Kyoto Samurai Experience, you can experience the authentic samurai culture. You will definitely feel special learning the art of swordmanship with a real sword, while feeling the Japanese tradition close to your heart in a samurai house with history. All the more, it’s not only the art of swordmanship you can try; you can also experience zen meditation. Swordmanship and zen are two main components of a samurai. By the time you complete this experience, the image you have had of a samurai might be changed!
Recommendation Points・You can wear the costume of a samurai to experience the art of swordmanship with a real sword
・Through experiencing the way of swordmanship and sitting zen, you can learn the strength of samurais
・You can feel the artistic culture of Japan in a samurai house built 250 years ago
But do not worry; shihan is very kind and warm. You can also learn about the way of samurais and their real strength from him.
It’s your first time, and not everything might not go as wished. But shihan will give you a lot of advice, and you can definitely cut off goza after trying out a few times.
