“Wonderful experience a bit off the beaten track!”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

If you are at all interested in martial arts, your trip to Kyoto MUST include a stop at the Budo Center. This is actually a compound of buildings right next to Heian Shrine, and includes the old historic budo building (closed when I visited), a modern gymnasium, a sumo building and an archery range. I think this place is pretty much open all day every day with all kinds of events & classes going on; I was lucky enough to stumble across a junior-high judo and kendo tournament, and an archery class. So cool!!!!
