Firstly, getting dressed into samurai outfits really puts you mentally into this historic character. Then some really cool professional photos, to remember the event. The best part is the training session, where you get expert tuition on how to present yourself, work with training swords and have a mock battle. I will never forget it, and neither will my son, whom I surprised with this event. You get a small license at the end, which I carry always and remember fondly of the fun we had. Highly recommend this event - great people, costumes and effort to make it as real as possible, and so much fun.

This was a really fun experience. From kimono dressing up to photoshoot to samurai choreographed training - it all was a unique experience as a visiting international tourist. Got a DVD at the end with pictures. I wish they gave a little more history of samurai and the art form.

Amazing Samurai Training experience My brother and I are grateful to the very attentive and kind lady in geisha costume and male samurai trainer. Both are credits to the Japanese culture and exuded the courteous sophisticated persona they represent. We will remember the training,pics,vids always :)

This tour was so much fun!! It was exciting selecting the outfit for the photos. Photographer took professional shots and assistant took a bunch of selfies with my camera. The training to be a Samurai was so much fun and videos were taken. Strongly recommended!! Included photos and certificate.

A highlight of our time in Tokyo. The 3 guys doing this were brilliant, from dressing us all up as samurai to the 75 minute actual class. They taught us the techniques well and were friendly and fun to be around. The two main guys who run this are exponents of the craft in exibitions in New York and India. A must do experience for the whole family for all ages and easily found in Asakusa near the temple.

My son loved the training/photo shoot! It was great fun for a 9 year old boy to dress as a samurai and learn how to use the sword. The trainer was very nice and dressed us in Japanese attire. He took pictures of us separately and together in our outfits and emailed them to us. He gave us a brief lesson on how to use the samurai swords in battle. It made for an enjoyable morning!
