    10% OFF Authentic Kyoto Samurai Experience

    10% OFF Authentic Kyoto Samurai Experience Yuta, Elle, Master and staff thank you so much for an amazing experience! Yuta was able to meet my boyfriend and I at the Hankyu Railway Station along with others in our group and it was a fun walk to the actual location. For this experience, we had a camera crew from Japan TV tape our session.

    It was exciting to learn the history of the home, samurai and the intent behind "The Way of the Warrior." I can appreciate the thorough training we received. It makes you feel you are a real samurai warrior and the staff focuses on each person in the group. Amazing to see Master's skills in person and get exposure to zen meditation. Great for individuals, couples and families.

    When in Kyoto, this is a must!

    10% OFF Authentic Kyoto Samurai Experience

    10% OFF Authentic Kyoto Samurai Experience We did the class with only 3 of us, so it was a really intimate experience. The teacher, Elle, and the assistant were all hands on and eager to ensure we get the best samurai experience they have on offer.

    We started with a short history of the house, where Elle spoke about how the property was more than 250 years old and was owned by a Samurai who worked at Nijo Castle during the Edo period. It really set the mood knowing there is so much history in our surroundings at that moment.

    The demonstration was surreal and we can tell that the teacher really knew his stuff. He took a lot of care handling the katana sword, showing it respect everytime he laid his hands on them.

    I'm glad I was able to slice off my bamboo when it was my turn to wield the sword.

    We also had tea and some zen meditation. It was an hour and a half of going back in time.

    Definitely recommend this experience for anyone who wants to do something unique in Kyoto, away from the crowds.

    10% OFF Authentic Kyoto Samurai Experience

    10% OFF Authentic Kyoto Samurai Experience Recommended by a good friend I was not to be disappointed!

    A warm welcome from Elle awaited as I stepped through the door of one of the remaining original Samurai houses, built almost 200 years ago and still owned by the same family. It was living history to walk through the rooms and to see at first-hand the original fittings and paintings.

    Masata and his sister spent the morning instructing me on the finer detail of Samurai music, Zen meditation and understanding the Kitana. An impressive display of swordsmanship led to my own instruction, which has left a distinct and lasting impression on me.

    A chance to experience this fascination and rich cultural tradition - I greatly enjoyed my visit and came away a wiser man.
