What to expect
Watch a captivating demonstration by a professional, then try handling the blade yourself. Also take the chance to put on a kimono, participate in tea ceremony, and try your hand at shodo calligraphy. Meet your instructor, a skilled professional, at a school dedicated to traditional Japanese arts and culture. Your instructor demonstrates shizan (test cutting), which involves a series of swift, precise cuts through a rolled straw mat. After the demonstration, take the opportunity to handle the blade yourself, learning how to hold and swing the katana under careful guidance. Immerse yourself further in Japanese culture by participating in a kimono dressing. Experienced dressers help you through the intricate process of donning the kimono's many layers and tying the obi belt. Men can try on haori-hakama, which features wide, trouser-like bottoms and a light jacket on top. Sit down for sado (Japanese tea ceremony) and learn about the etiquette needed to properly enjoy the sweets and bitter matcha green tea of the elaborate custom. During a shodo (calligraphy) lesson, practice exact brush strokes and flicks before drawing out a word in kanji, Japanese characters.

Appalling, they have never replied to emails and are avoiding the payment refund.
We cancelled the tour in advance and have NEVER been refunded the payment, my advice to anybody is to avoid at all

Better living conditions for the animals. The small cages the otters and chinchillas were kept in are horrible.
