  • This store took me 3 days to find, it was not the easiest of places to find using a map and google. Follow the Bodu signs when near the Big Shrine, the shop is very small so could be hard to miss and ...  more »
  • The katanas and both IAI offered in Tozando are not mere decorative imitations, but premium products created in traditional way, whose only difference from the original is its sheet, composed of an alloy and lacking in sharpness. Also sell clothing and all kinds of elements for training, as well as collection products (obviously very expensive, there is yoroi and Katana shinken from USD 5000 onwards). In terms of personnel, it is people extremely respectful, friendly and eager to help. In particular I would like to highlight and thank the attention by the Lady Haruko Tsuchiya, who also speak perfect English, was their knowledge of Spanish. Finally, I'd like to leave a recommendation: while purchasing a "katana" or "somewhat" deliver you a paper that explains that it is an ornamental product dull, in China and Korea airports had problems (despite the fact that obviously was dispatched luggage ); therefore I recommend to carry a small note in English where explain origin, characteristics and (ornamental) destiny of the sword and ask at hotels where staying that please translate them the same text in Chinese, Korean or as appropriate. Believe me that this will facilitate the process.
