Great experience in every way. Straff was punctual and very nice and helpful. Even though i was alone (Corona times) they arranged everything and were invested and kind. English guide was great so no languages barriers as well as a photographer, so you didn't have to focus on taking photos. Can not find a single thing wrong with this experience, perfect.

It was an amazing experience. From demonstrations, learning the history of the samurai + kyoto to actually wielding a sword. It was great experience! Thank you!

We really enjoyed our experience. We learned a lot, we had fun and a peaceful moment. Explanations and organisation was simple and clear. Everyone was really kind and nice. We really recommend people do to this experience. Thank you again for your flexibility (with the coved-19 we had to take our plane earlier than expected and they kindly accept to move our session) Yoann and Emeline.

The experience was really cool. It is a located in a real ancient samurei home, you get to wear samurei clothes and get a good idea of the samurei. The coolest part is to lead a katana yourself and the zen meditation afterwards. Everyone is super friendly and the explanations are in perfect english (simultaneous translation by an american women).

Exciting and informative. This is a unique opportunity to use a katana for real. I also loved the shakuhachi performance!
