real katana, samurai experience

star-5
At LAST SAMURAI, you will appreciate the sword and deepen your knowledge about samurai. And at the end, we ask them to do "trial cutting" using the actual sword. An exciting experience awaits you that you will never experience in your everyday life. In the old days, Iai and sword-cutting techniques were indispensable techniques to protect oneself or protect the Lord during battle. I don't think such a technique is necessary in modern times, but here at LAST SAMURAI, I believe that learning about this technique and samurai under safe instruction will broaden your spirituality and perspective. It will be a great experience for anyone interested in Samurai, Japan.
