Það sem verður gert

This is an excellent chance for visitors to get a firsthand look into the world of the samurai. Get a glimpse into the philosophies of Bushido, the way of the warrior, and try your hand at wielding a real katana. Afterwards, practice some inward reflection with Zen meditation, used by the samurai to calm their minds during battle.

-Form Practice-
Before being given a real blade it is important to master the basics. We will begin our training using wooden practice swords and instruct you on the proper grip, posture, and form.

-A Real Katana (Japanese sword)-
After learning the basics, the next step is to wield a real katana, and use it to cut though a goza mat. We will place the goza mat vertically on a special stand and you can put your sword skills to the test.

-Zen (meditation)-
To wrap up the course you will be learn how to meditate using singing bowls. A singing bowl is a type of bell, the sounds of which help to clear and calm the mind. Though this deep meditation you will be able to dissipate some of the excitement from practicing with the sword and also learn ways in which Zen meditation can assist you in your daily life as well.

An excellent must try experience. Being a resident of Japan for many years, I definitely wanted to avoid the cheesy tourist trap kind of places. So I booked this place after reading various reviews (from others who were looking to avoid the same). Lucky for me, I was the only person in attendance (thanks Omicron), so I was able to receive amazing one on one tuition from the modern day samurai’s who occupied the residence. The main samurai/trainer being Masato. A man who has been training in various martial arts, including Kendo, Iaido, and Kenpo) since the age of 3. The translator (and person who picked me up) was a warm and wonderful lady from America, named Elle. She was a great host, her translation skills were on point (properly explaining what the trainers were saying, and not looking for any shortcuts), who also happily filmed all of my flimsy attempts at cutting through the bamboo stacks. Definitely worth booking once you get a chance, whether your an international or domestic tourist. Also worth much more than the price they ask you to pay.

Wonderful experience that made a great perfect birthday gift for my husband who is a big fan of the samurai history and culture. The performance in the beginning was amazing and the meditation in the end was pleasant. We got to get dressed in the traditional outfits, drink some green tea and look around the house which is a piece of history itself. Kids loved it as well. English translation was perfect and we felt welcomed. Highly recommend!

It was a very unforgettable experience. The story behind the old Japanese house, performance, zen session and try the real Kanata, those were the highlights of my trip in Kyoto. The staffs are super welcoming and professional. I would love to recommend this experience to other friends when they visit Kyoto.

This experience was one of the highlights of our whole trip. The location and venue are amazing - an original Samurai house in the heart of Kyoto. Watching the demonstration was just incredibly exciting and then actually getting to hold and swing a real katana! Wow! And some Zen meditation too - beautiful. If you are considering booking this experience - then my suggestion would be to stop considering and start booking! You won’t be disappointed - a grade A experience all round. Wonderful. Thank you 🙏

A must do experience when in Kyoto. My two children and I had a great time and was one of the highlights of our trip. We did a couple of samurai/ninja experiences around Japan and this was the only one where my six and nine year old had an authentic experience using live blades. The location, photography and cultural experience with live music was amazing and a bonus.

Amazing experience!! Felt authentic and getting to cut the bamboo with the samurai sword was actually more of an adrenaline rush than I thought it would be. Absolutely worth it!
