Japanese traditional cultural experience in Tokyo

Our samurai experience program entails dressing up in a samurai costume and learning samurai sword fighting (Tate) first-hand. Anybody can join the activity regardless of age and gender, as long as you have the samurai spirit within you.

Our samurai experience plan has been featured on TV and in the media, and has already been enjoyed by over 3,000 people from many different countries!

Since this type of experience is rare in Tokyo, we have been incorporated into tour plans by tourist agencies and travel agencies, and our experience has been very well received by visitors to Tokyo from all over the country.

The unique feature of our Samurai Experience is that we are staffed by professionals who are active in video and stage productions!

Enjoy the authentic samurai experience with us!

We had booked a private Samurai session for 2 and had a lot of fun. We got dressed in the traditional robes and learned some really cool moves. Our teacher was really great and would have loved to have more sessions with him! At the end we did the fight sequence which was such a great memory. Fully recommend this to anyone who is interested in any martial arts or wants to have a fun and interesting experience

Learning about Japanese culture through the art of the samurai sword is a fantastic experience. The lessons are not only enjoyable but also taught by skilled and knowledgeable teachers. It's a great opportunity to immerse oneself in the rich traditions of Japan and explore the techniques of the samurai sword.

This was an amazing experience for our family of 5, with two boys 9 & 11, and our daughter 13. It was educational and entertaining, while creating an action packed adventure that was a nice respite from visiting Just shrines, temples and food. I would highly recommend it for anyone looking to learn and EXPERIENCE a great Japanese tradition!

What a fun experience in Harajuku! You get to have fun with real swords and learn a little about samurai etiquette. In the end we acted out an action clip! Shinichi sensei and team does a great job communicating and teaching non-Japanese fluent people and makes it fun for kids. I highly recommend doing this.

This was absolutely brilliant. The teacher and his assistant are both very charming and knowledgeable. And it's great to come away with a short clip of yourself in a sword fight. Highly recommended!

Fabulous fun!! My friend and I are on the large side so I was worried they wouldn't have costumes in our sizes, but they did! The teacher was efficient and encouraging and the lesson was well structured and easy to follow, culminating in a short choreographed sword fight with you as the star👍
