Tokyo: The Only Genuine Japanese Archery (Kyudo) Experience

10. Tokyo: The Only Genuine Japanese Archery (Kyudo) Experience

Welcome to Tokyo, Japan! Experience KYUDO, the Japanese art of archery, the most beautiful, elegant martial art, with this program in Tokyo. In Japan, KYUDO is recognized to be a “Dynamic ZEN Meditation”. Believe it or not, you know when you hit the target the moment the arrow leaves your hand. Usually in Japan, when people take up KYUDO in earnest, it takes several months of practice before they are allowed to actually shoot at a target, but this program lets you go straight into action. Don a real traditional KYUDO uniform. Get matched with a bow and arrows for your body. Channel your inner spirits, but keeping your mind quiet, and try shooting an arrow at the middle of the target. You have dozens of times to try, but please understand that you may not hit the target on your first day, or you may get lucky once or twice. So, get advice on how to improve your movement. Although the instructor in this program is a DAN master (seeker), we have made many improvements over the thousands of people we have accepted for this experience and have created the program that can be enjoyed even by those who are new to Kyudo. * The meeting place for this program is different each time. Then after reservation, find the location by our message (the location is NOT at Tokyo station) * We would appreciate your assistance in carrying tools and cleaning the hall when we are done using it

What people are saying about Tokyo Station

Overall rating

(797 reviews)

The pass is definitely useful and worthy to be purchased. It covers all national routes and you can use it also for some of Tokyo city stations. Regarding the service of GYG, the voucher arrived on time and it was sent shortly after booking it. The price is convenient, as I found it a little bit more expensive on other websites/platforms. The only inconvenience was that the courier did not let me reschedule the delivery (that would have been desirable as on the preview day I would not have been home to receive it)

Travel very comfortably from A to B, quickly and on time. This is highly recommended for anyone who doesn't just stay in one city. This card can also be used on local transport. You just have to find out a little bit about where you are ;) You can book spaces for larger suitcases, but they are often gone quickly. But even large suitcases fit in the overhead storage space.

Super fun day by day with Japanese snacks and tea and even a small picnic between cycling. Very nice Japanese guide. Made a lot of effort to show as much as possible during the bike tour. Moderate command of the English language, but that was also the charm of this bike tour through traditional neighborhoods in Tokyo.

Tokyo by bike with our guide was a mega experience! We saw corners that you would never see otherwise. And the guide was so warm and patient! Highly Recommended

Very good value for money (worth it when taking several trips on the bullet train). The trains are impeccable and their punctuality is amazing.
