I took this class with my daughters (5 years old and 9 years old) and everyone really enjoyed it. Nice restaurant across the street when you go out. The museum is small and authentic and was a great experience with the kids.

Interesting place, they have done well training the staff to have a bit of fun with the visitors. Interesting facts and a bit of tacky tourist fun, but overall worth a visit to learn a bit about them Samurais!

Honestly thought this was going to be a bust. Was really wrong. The guides knew their stuff. Answered every question in depth. Up close to Samurai armor. You can even see the sword strikes from use. Amazing Go, you will be pleasantly surprised.

No extra cost for guide, just join in at the time stated for tour to start. I would do this one with the guide - all part of the experience, bringing things to life
