About 700 years of samurai age (from Kamakura to Edo period), Japan had been faced crisis such as, the Mongolian invasions of Japan and the arrival of the Black Ships (Perry’s fleet). We introduce those brave samurai warriors and their spirit confronted the difficulties to not only Japanese people but also all people visiting from foreign countries. We are very happy if you can see what samurai spirit is and feel their spirits still living in today’s Japanese people.
