We own a facility called 「Cool Japan experience」in Asakusa which is the platform for Japanese Cultural Experience produced by Japan Creative Dance Takafuji. Our theme is 「Dream Experience」, where we hope one gets to experience a dream of their lifetime at our place. We have other Japanese cultural experiences that one can enjoys freely at our Tokyo Bon in Asakusa.

The area
Address
Neighborhood: Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.

NO SHOW AT DEPARTURE POINT
Oct 2019
I was given very little information on where to meet, not landmark just an address that even local shop owners could not find.

I went 30 mins early and left 30 mins after meeting time.
I waited over an nour and decided to leave
How disappointing.

I emailed to see if i could either get a new booking or a refund.

No response.

Dear Sir or Madam Thank you for kindly contacting us about your reservaition. We apologize for the inconvenience you experienced. Our shop is on the 2 floor of the shoe store. So we put out a signboard on the street outside, and when there is a reservation, we put out a board with customer's name written on it. Still, there were a lot of people and shops on the street, so it might have been difficult for you to find. We will refund you as a matter of course. However, we may not be able to confirm your email. Sorry to bother you but can you let me know your name and booking number? Again, please accept my apology. Regards, Jiro

So much fun
Sep 2019 • Couples
I had such an awesome time here with my boyfriend. Great memories of sword fighting. I would highly recommend going!! Also afterwards it's quite fun just going around the area it is based in.. Lots of good shops for gifts

Location can be quite confusing so basically put the address in Google. After you turn right on the street it's about two doors down. .. The place is basically in what looks like an empty shop. When you to though there will be a poster advertising geisha experiences. Go Upstairs. And there you go!!

Samurai experience!!
This experience was pure awesomeness. You get to dress up like a samurai and get basic training on using the katana, and then get to have a training fight with pics and video recording. Epic! Jiro and Maho were so nice and very patient with me.

Sooo much fun!
My husband and I had a blast here. I’m actually really sick and was worried I’d have to sit this one out, but the instructor was really patient with me. The whole experience was awesome from start to finish, and the instructors assistant (the women who helped dress me) even game me something for my throat after. Above and beyond, I would recommend this to anyone coming to Tokyo.

great time at Samurai Experience with Jero
Jun 2019
Thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon time with the Samurai Experience. It is a bit of a challenge to find this place though it’s not too far off the subway and right near the Sensoji temple. Use the GPS - it really helped - and also look for the Venis shoe store as it’s literally right next to/behind it. walk through a narrow hall and climb a narrow staircase to the first stop. Great choice of kimonos to change into including wooden sandals. We all had our pictures taken and they came out great! Then off to another nearby location for a lesson with Jero in how to handle a Katon. Jero was a great teacher and very patient with us all. Was great especially with my 11 year old son. Taught us the basics and then a choreographed Samurai battle which he recorded on our phones. We had so much fun - we were laughing so hard we cried. Great stuff!, a highlight of the day and a must for anyone bringing a boy to Japan or just anyone who enjoys learning about Samurais. Ended out time receding a cool memento - our Samurai license. Walked away smiling and still laughing about the fun we had, Thank you Jero and Samurai experience.

Good experience! It's worth it!
May 2018 • Friends
It felt a bit weird to wear a kimono and have a boy carry a rickshaw through Tokyo while people were looking at us :)) But the boy was great, the people who dressed us were nice, it was an experience I remember well now, when I'm writing this review, 6 month after the ride, that brings a smile to my face. It's worth it!

Great Samurai experience!
Dec 2018 • Couples
I decided to make a special present for my bf and I booked a samurai experience!
It was really worth! Jiro San has been a great sensei: he taught my boyfriend a lot of samurai moves and they also played a kind of samurai battle. Despite he took pictures too, I was allowed to take pictures by myself and also videos.
My boyfriend had to choose the samurai outfit and wear it, then the fun began.
The staff is very gentle and you really feel comfortable and like you're having fun with friends. We also got a dvd with all the pictures taken by Jiro.
I really recommend this experience if you're into old Japan and history.
CIAO and ありがとうございました from Italy!

Immersed into Japanese history
Jun 2018 • Couples
My husband and I went to this location for a Japanese samurai experience we used to see only on TV. We started with a photo session. There is a guy who dressed us up first and then he took a lot of pictures of us, very professional ones.
Then we went with a different guy who taught us different techniques of handling the sword and fight.
On the minus side is finding the location was a little challenging. There is no sign or anything. Luckily we took lunch at a Ramen Restaurant close by and we asked the crew there and they guided us to a shoe store Venis. The shoe store crew guided us in the back for our samurai experience.
