real katana, samurai experience

At LAST SAMURAI, you will deepen your knowledge of samurai through courtesy, mold and armor. And at the end you will use the actual seriousness to do a "test-off". Exciting experiences that are not experienced in everyday life are waiting for you. In the old days, Ii, as well as sculpting techniques, were essential techniques to keep a fight or to protect oneself. Although it seems that such technology is not necessary in the present age, here at LAST SAMURAI I believe that learning about this technology, Zen under safe guidance will broaden spirituality and vision.It includes videos, testimonials, and whistles when you try out and it will be a great experience for anyone interested in Japan.
