    Japanese Sword Forge Private Tour & Lesson in Kameoka, Kyoto

    Japanese Sword Forge Private Tour & Lesson in Kameoka, Kyoto The experience has been a highlight for my son and I, both Masahiro's explanation of the history of sword making in Japan and the practical lesson in making our own knives was excellent.
    We were picked up by Masahiro from Kameoka Station and then taken to his home and forge where we were provided with a detailed explanation of the types of Japanese swords and their components. We then went through the process of making our own knife using the Forge. This was fantastic and the highlight of the tour as we were able to transform a piece of metal into a beautiful knife in the space of a few hours.
    We didn't have the interpreter as part of our tour, however, Masahiro was able to easily explain to us how to do each element of the forging process.
    I would highly recommend this to anyone interested in sword making or Japanese culture.

    Japanese Sword Forge Private Tour & Lesson in Kameoka, Kyoto It was a great experience and we lurned how to make a simple japanes knive. We really like it. But the translator doesn t speak enought english. It was very dificult to understand what he was saying and almost imposible to make questions about specifics details. He was inventing words and finally we stop asking and only following.

    Japanese Sword Forge Private Tour & Lesson in Kameoka, Kyoto A very interesting experience. We had no previous experience but still created a knife.
    Do allow more time than you expect, the information stated a half day activity but we spent a full day there.
    The day exceeded expectations.

    Japanese Sword Forge Private Tour & Lesson in Kameoka, Kyoto It was amazing tour. The sword smith picks you up from the station and takes you into the middle of Kameoka to his workshop. There you get to experience making a knife. He was easy to follow, very patient and made us feel very welcome into his workshop. I strongly recommend this tour. Thankyou so much for a wonderful day.
