“TATE” -SAMURAI SWORD PLAY-

main02

Become a samurai in both body and mind!!
This interest includes gaining a deeper understanding and appreciation for “The Samurai Spirit”.

With this in mind, we have launched programs for “Samurai Swordplay” in order to introduce guests from across the globe to one of the core essences of traditional Japanese culture and society.

Participants of this program will learn how to hold a sword, handle it, draw it from its sheath, and return it – actions that represent the basic movements of “Samurai Swordplay”.

Equally important are the traditional manners and etiquette of “reigisaho” – how to stand, sit, and bow.

The samurai of the past ages were famous for their traditions and ethical code honor, politeness, courage, sincerity, and self-control, all together known as part of the culture of “Bushido”.

Participants in our program will be able to learn of these aspects through a hands-on and spiritual “Spirit of Wa– Japanese Harmony”.

Please offer yourself the opportunity to leam something new, unique, and unforgettable!
With this Samurai experience, you may be able to find a place in your heart for a memorable and educational visit to Japan.

Let us help you learn about the Japanese way of thinking, culture and customs, and let your time with us build friendships not only in Japan but across the globe.

Foreign tourists, visitors, and residents, and all locals, are most welcome!
