An absolute must do
Its not often you will get to meet a Samurai master let alone get to wield a 400 year old Katana.
For those who have ever wondered what its like to hold such a weapon this is a must do event. However you absolutely must listen carefully and take notice of what is being said to you, this is no toy or copy its a genuine Katana sword and incredibly sharp.
You also get an opportunity to fling some rubber ninja stars and blow darts from a pipe.
The museum tour is a well worth it venue, the guide speaks excellent english and is well knowledgable on the Japanese feudal era.
Please go you will not be disappointed..

Samurai Great experience
Oct 2019
Do the sword experience. The other experiences were a little lame. With the sword we learned a little about the etiquite and then got to slice a bamboo mat. Very worth while. Only problem was finding the place. Google maps and directions were needed.

Great fun on a rainy afternoon!

A fun experience for a grownup samurai and ninja fan. Got to throw plastic shuriken and try on some fun samurai armor. The museum tour was very informative about Japanese history and the Samurai. Also kid-friendly.

Amazing experience!
Jun 2019 • Solo
I've always been fascinated with ninjas and samurai. When I made it to Japan for my first visit and saw that this was an option, I jumped on the chance. Speaking next to zero Japanese was not a hindrance. All the staff spoke English so don't let that be a deterrent. It was a great experience and possibly my favorite part of my trip. Where else can you be instructed my a master swordsman who's been studying the blade for 40 years and can trace his lineage back to the samurai? I cannot recommend this experience enough.
