- Learn Japanese martial art "Iaido (居合道 Iaidō)" like the samurai, using the 400-year old authentic method - Visit the only place an Tokyo where you can practice with a real sword - Learn to wield a sword and feel the authentic samurai experience

Bushido is the way of the Samurai warrior and the code that the Samurai have to live by. During this experience, you will learn the techniques and the control needed to conduct yourself as the samurai once did. Through the use of a real Japanese Katana you will practice Iaido on real targets and cut them to pieces. The dojo (Japanese for training hall) we will be visiting is called the “Ryuseikan”, which sits at an easily accessible location from parts of central Tokyo (Shibuya, Shinjuku etc.) Once we arrive at the dojo, the Bushido master will serve as your guide for the day. There will also be a translator to help you communicate so that you can enjoy focusing and honing your skills. We will spend about 2 hours at the dojo, participating in basic training and different techniques needed to live in the way of the warrior.

    I did the Bushido / Samurai experience in this tour and it was amazing for me. We sweared the Hakama (Samurai's cloth) and used the real sword to cut the targets made by Tatami. This tour let me become a Samurai and knew this Japanese history/ culture in real. It's really cool for me.See moreSee less

    Japan is knowed worldwide for it's martial expert. Bushido is often misunderstood and need to be experience from the roots. Having the great chance to meet and master and benefits from his teaching is very unique. It ever come to be greater when we are granted to experiment a katana slicing into a training mat. A very deep and great experience.See moreSee less
