    What to Expect
    Visit: Samurai Museum, 2-25-6 Kabukicho Eiwa Dairoku Bldg 1F, Shinjuku 160-0021 Tokyo Prefecture

    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. Detailed descriptions for each display are given in English, Chinese and Korean so that foreign visitors can easily understand and appreciate the artifacts. The Samurai Photo-Shooting corner where you can take your picture wearing armor and helmet is super popular with visitors from overseas. The museum also offers a full range of original Samurai gift items for sale.

    The guide wasn’t as knowledgeable as expected, I kept looking for a large facility, left early because the children were a distraction.
