It’s a wonderful experience for us! We learned a lot of cultures about samurai. Even though I’m not good at sheathing and unsheathing, they still taught me in patience and clearly. Can you imagine that you can see closely and use real samurai swords which are more than 400 years old? Come here and experience it! It’s worth your while!
What a wonderful experience this was! Fun and educational, the staff here have brilliant knowledge of thier art and background and are more than enthusiastic to share. If you are looking for a Samurai experience in Kyoto this is the one. Small class size, real blades, excellent English translation. They'll even encourage you to pose for photos. Plus actually cutting through the tatami was brilliant. It's a short walk from the bus stop, tucked away in a very old and historic part of town (just North of Nijo Castle), but not difficult to find. I will say: I'd you're tall watch your head!
