What to Expect

Learn the moves and skills of a Samurai in this immersive tour! After changing into tradition dohgi outfit, you'll learn terms such as "iai" (a technique to quickly remove your sword from its sheath) and "shuriken" (a small, star-shaped weapon made out of iron), which both symbolize the Samurai.

After Samurai training, refuel with lunch. You'll be served traditional Japanese cuisine. In the restaurant, see if you can spot the Unryu-Zu (A Dragon and Clouds) painting by Musashi Miyamoto. He's one of the most famous swordsmen in Japan!
