About
At LAST SAMURAI, you will appreciate the sword and deepen your knowledge about samurai. And at the end, we ask them to do "trial cutting" using the actual sword. An exciting experience awaits you that you will never experience in your everyday life. In the old days, Iai and sword-cutting techniques were indispensable techniques to protect oneself or protect the Lord during battle. I don't think such a technique is necessary in modern times, but here at LAST SAMURAI, I believe that learning about this technique and samurai under safe instruction will broaden your spirituality and perspective. It will be a great experience for anyone interested in Samurai, Japan.

Great Experience for Learning Samurai Katana Skills
Aug 2020
This was an excellent experience, really well-structured and well-executed. I had a one-on-one session; the instructor was very informative, and gave excellent feedback on how to correct deficiencies and improve performance. Thanks to his excellent instruction, I was able to slice up the makiwara post down to the bottom. The atmosphere of the building was also great; spacious, with beautiful designs and stained-glass windows. Both the instructor and his assistant were very gracious and polite, and ensured a pleasant atmosphere. For those interested in wielding a katana and learning samurai skills, highly recommended.

Good fun. Not to serious.
Mar 2020 • Friends
We were 15 minutes late but they didn't mind which we were grateful for. After changing we were sent in to the dojo with its nifty stain glass window. The entire process was very chatty which was nice. We were able to ask lots of questions, them speaking fluently English helped. After some training we did a photo shoot and then we meditated to calm down in this tiny room with some much appreciated ambience before finally we cut tatami Matts with the crash course they had given us. We were given certificates, had more conversation and with that, we left. Highly reccomended. Not super traditional and serious however It's fun, flashy and awesome.
Thanks for the experience last samurai.

What an experience!!
Mar 2020 • Couples
Wow!!

We had an awesome time from the moment we stepped foot in the beautiful place of "last Samurai".

Very kind people and our teacher was superb as well.

I think the room in which you practice being a Samurai is one of the most beautiful rooms i've ever seen.

The highlight was the cutting of the tatami!! Once again with superb guidance of the crew!

All in all a wonderful experience.

The Real Authentic Samurai Experience.
Feb 2020
The Samurai experience was absolutely INCREDIBLE! Its everything you can expect in a Samurai class. And I had a BLAST! Lucky for me I was able to get a private lesson. THE #1 BEST THING ABOUT YASUAKI CLASS IS THE FACT THAT HE WILL ALLOW YOU TO USE YOUR OWN CAMERA AND FOOTAGE. AND HE HAS AN ASSISTANT THAT WILL HELP YOU FILM & TAKE GORGEOUS PHOTOS WHILE YOUR GOING THROUGH TRAINING. For those solo travelers.

They have their own gigantic Dojo that could probably fit 80 people inside with 3 floors. You will first be greeted by Yasuaki himself at the door greeting you in samurai fashion. You'll then be properly dressed in Samurai clothing and walk straight towards the dojo. Yasuaki will walk you through the history of the samurai culture and allow you to pick out many types of different swords. And then thats when the class really begins. My favorite part through the entire class was the meditation room and religion since thats a big part of my life. If you are deciding to travel out to Japan Yasuaki is the Class you need to learn from. He's quick to responds and he's more than willing to spend more time with you depending on your satisfaction. Time isn't a issue he'll also point out some great restaurants if you need a break. I am truly satisfied with Yasuaki class this was a great experience for me as a foreigner traveling inside Japan. Highly recommend Yasuki for your Samurai teaching.

WELL DONE

My husband and son had an amazing time on their trip to Last Samurai whilst in Japan recently. They found it be an authentic and deeply satisfying Japanese cultural experience. A must do while in Japan for anyone who wants a brief taste of Samurai culture.

Amazing experience
Jan 2020 • Solo
I really enjoyed the Samurai experience here. I have zero knowledge and never touched a sword before. Everyone was very very patience in guiding me through step by step. It was very interesting and memorable and I do hope they open up more classes/training lessons in the future because I’m definitely going back. Thank you so so much!!!

Awesome and unique experience
Jan 2020
The Samurai and Katana Training was an awesome and unique experience. The staff and the trainer speak very good English, explain everything very well and guide you very good through the training. The location is very nice and everything was just perfect. It is very nice that they take pictures and videos for you, so you can concentrate on the training. The highlight at the end, stroke a dummy with a real Katana is absolut awesome. I highly recommend this overall perfect organized activity.
