What you'll do

●We’ll pick you up at your accommodation. ●You can choose your Kimono. We will help you to change into a Hakama (traditional Japanese samurai clothes). ●Feel the “OMOTENASHI” (traditional Japanese hospitality ) with Japanese real Matcha(green tea). ●We will teach you about KATANAs (Japanese swords) and Japanese history. ●First of all you will learn the correct grip and posture to use a KATANA with a replica KATANA. ●We will then practice meditation, to focus and empty your mind before handling a real KATANA. ●After meditating you will be given a real KATANA to try TAMESHIGIRI, all under our professional guidance. Handling a real KATANA and using it to cut something is a rather rare experience, which we hope will give you an even deeper understanding of Japanese history, culture and traditions. 3 hours including driving time

Junichi

I have been practicing KENDO (traditional Japanese fencing) over 20 years. During this time I discovered TAMESHIGIRI. The challenge of needing complete and perfect focus to create a clean cut while performing TAMESHIGIRI fascinated me.
