Experience a day with a Bushido master, and enjoy quality time at a dojo! Through this trip, you not only will you learn how to use a katana (Japanese sword), but you’ll also get an inside look at the real life of Bushido master.
What to Expect
The dojo you will visit is called Ryuseikan, and is easily accessible from major areas in Tokyo (Shibuya, Shinjuku and so forth). You will meet at 13.00 at your tour guide's office, located only a 10-minute walk from Harajuku station, then travelling to the dojo by car. Once you arrive, a bushido master will be your guide for the day.
The number of participants is limited to 8 people, so that a more personal, hospitable service is ensured for everyone! A translator will also be available to help you communicate throughout the day, so don't worry about the language barrier.
You will spend about 3 to 4 hours at a dojo (Japanese training hall) participating in a variety of activities you may never have experienced before. In addition to experiencing a Bushido lesson, you will also have a chance to talk with the locals and hear their life stories.
After the trip, we will head back to Harajuku station and finish the day.
