    mon mari et moi avons eu à une formation pratiquement individuelle. Tout d'abord, il vous faut revêtir l'habit traditionnel (grâce à l'aide du personnel, je précise car pas évident). Ensuite, place à une séance photo avec différentes armes, pendant laquelle vous êtes guidés par Jiro (très pro). Il faut donne une carte mémoire à la fin. Ensuite, vous allez dans une autre salle pour apprendre à pratiquer le maniement des épées. Jiro est très pro et patient et n'hésite pas à vous faire répéter les bons gestes jusqu'à ce qu'ils soient acquis. Nous avons terminé la séance par un combat entre mon mari et moi, le tout filmé par Jiro...Un grand moment de fou rire.. Le plus compliqué est quand même de localiser l’entrée du bâtiment (même avec un GPS: il faut entrer dans un magasin qui vend des chaussures et loue des kimonos : pour nous, un mannequin devant le magasin portait un pancarte avec nos noms et nous indiquait où aller mais ...nous n'avons vu la pancarte qu'au 3ème passage dans la rue

    I had a good time. Jiro was a fun instructor with a good attitude. It was a rainy day and I was the only one there and so received individual instruction for the whole time which was very nice. This is not a formal martial arts class. You're dressed up in a samurai outfit, they take photos of you, and then teach you basics of how to draw and hold the sword, how to stand & move, how to make cuts. The final product is they take a short video of you and the instructor going through a scripted sparing match (note: you win!).

    Quite hard to find (look up on the building). Take few more minutes extra for locating the entrance :)

    Very friendly welcome in cosy atelier!

    Many choices how to dress up and if you dont know, the pro staff will help you out.

    I personally did photo shooting only once in my lifetime, but Jiro, without any frustration from my side, navigated me how to put into the pose. Very appreciated!

    After photo session went to small room to practice the art of samurais. From how to respect spirit of the sword, through honoring your opponent to sword fencing itself. Jiro is very skilled, very nice work with people and also funny fellow :)))

    I really enjoyed entire practice and just made me feel I want to continue in practice somehow.

    Highly recommended!

    Prenotato all'ultimo minuto questa esperienza da samurai e trovato disponibilità. Il posto a prima vista molto piccolo e complicato per arrivarci (bisogno attraversare un piccolo corridoio alle spalle di un negozio). Una volta sopra Jiro ci ha accolto con un bel sorriso e tanto entusiasmo. Ci ha vestite da samurai e poi ci ha fatto un piccolo book fotografico mostrandoci qualche posa. Dopodiché abbiamo fatto una oretta di training con piccolo combattimento! Tutto molto divertente, consigliatissimo. Il gadte è una bella scheda di memoria con tutte le foto scattate da lui, e tutti i video girati con i nostri telefoni.

    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!!

    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.

    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.

    We went through this experience on the last day of our stay in Tokyo and we did not regret it. Place is difficult to find and you need to ask around to find it but the experience was really good. We got dressed as Samurai and after having a lot of photos of us being taken in the Samurai costume, we then went and had Samurai training with videos of our training being captured also! During the training we were given detailed information regarding the history of Samurai and their training. Very pleasurable experience, which if someone is interested in martial arts, would definitely enjoy.
