Kendo Experience Tour SAMURAI TRIP

Kendō is a traditional Japanese martial art. This competitive Japanese swordsmanship involves two people aiming to strike each other on predetermined points. Through the practice of kendō, you can learn three important things: "unity of mind and spirit," "Japanese manners," and "lifelong kendō." Why not experience refining your mind, body and technique?

Kendō experience for international tourists!

Experience the peace of the dōjō, etiquette of kendō, clashing of shinai (bamboo swords), echoing voices... This is a tour where you can try firsthand samurai training to hone your mind, technique, and body.
