Very Good

“ Good experience - worth doing. ”

Kenshi is obviously very experienced in Kendo and keen to share his knowledge. He is very friendly and although there is a bit of a language barrier at times it does not take away from the experience. We were met and taken back to the train station which was very helpful as there is no way we would have found the Dojo by ourselves. The whole experience took about 1hr 30minutes which I think was just about right given it's quite a physical tour. I was able to watch and take lots of pictures and a few videos so we have a record of what my husband and sons did. Would recommend the tour but NOT call it a Samurai tour - it is quite misleading as it is a KENDO experience.

Excellent
