You'll try Shizan(Test Cutting with real Japanese sword) to learn the Samurai spirit.
Shizan refers to a practice of cutting a simulated target of rolled tatami mat top layers.
This practice requires practitioner’s concentration and courage, as might be expected of a practice performed with a real Japanese sword.
Head Master of "Edo-Mugairyu-Iai Hyoho" created this Shizan experience program to provide beginners the opportunity to try Shizan and to be exposed to the samurai spirit while sufficiently giving consideration to the safety of the attempt.
And,Head Master himself spoon-feeds you considering an individual difference such as physical conditions and a physical strength!!
That's why you can try this practice without worrying about your physical strength and experience, but please follow faithfully the instructions given by the master !! leer más

“ Amazing way to learn the city and history ”

We couldn't have asked for a better first day in Tokyo! Hiroki-san was gracious, funny, and was able to help us navigate the most confusing subway system we've ever seen! As first timers to Japan, it was very overwhelming trying to find what to do and how to travel there. By doing this tour, we not only traversed the city, but learned so many different things in the process! Hiroki-san was even able to customize our day based on preferences we provided. We never had to pull out a phone to navigate, got amazing pictures, and will cherish these memories forever!

Hiroki:

Dear Audrey san, Thank you so much for choosing me as a tour guide on your first day in Japan and writing such a great review despite being busy getting ready for many things !! During the tour I really had a great time with you and your wonderful family, and yesterday was a day that leaves behind an enjoyable memory !! Also, your sincere attitude towards learning Japan really impressed me !! Thanks to the information for your preferences you gave me beforehand, I was able to customize your day smoothly. Thank you again, and please give my best regards to Josh-san and Ryan-san !! Sincerely, Hiroki

“ Enlightening experience ”

Hiroki-san is a very kind and knowledgeable individual. I had a superb time with him exploring the treasures of Tokyo. His command over Japan's history is just amazing. I would definitely recommend Hiroki-san to anyone who has a free day to explore Tokyo city.

Hiroki:

Dear Rajeev-san, Thank you so much for choosing me as a tour guide on your last day in Japan and writing such a wonderful review on my tour despite being busy just before your flight !! Since my happiest moments are when I hear that my guests had a memorable time, your heartfelt review really inspired me !! Thank you again, and have a nice flight to Singapore !! Sincerely, Hiroki

“ Great guy, fun tour ”

Hiroki was extremely helpful and considerate. We did the iaido lesson,and I really enjoyed it.

Hiroki:

Dear Aaron, Thank you very much for taking the "Iai-do experience tour to learn Samurai spirit" and giving me the excellent tour review!! Since the Iaido lesson includes not only how to cut a simulated target of a tatami roll with a real Japanese sword but also the appreciation of the museum piece Japanese sword and the Samurai Armours once possessed by highest ranking Samurai warriors called “Daimyo feudal lord” actually having those historic weapons in your hands, I’m sure you’re able to fully enjoy the lesson !! Thank you again, and please enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan!! Sincerely, Hiroki

“ Fake food! ”

Hiroki met us at our hotel and took us to Asakusa train station, we wanted to do a replica wax food workshop that required a guide to be with you, he arranged the booking for us and paid and organised anything, before the workshop he took us around the area and talked to us about the history and we also got to ask some of our burning questions we’d been dying to find the answer to during our trip in japan. He was lovely and insightful and knowledgeable, thank you so much Hiroki!!

Hiroki:

Dear Freya, Thank you very much for taking my private tour of Walking around Asakusa with workshop and giving me such a wonderful review !! It’s just an hour walking tour in Asakusa near the workshop venue, but your questions to the point during the tour and the wonderful replica wax food making workshop made the tour meaningful and memorable one !! Needless to say, Asakusa is the one of the best destinations being able to give you enough satisfaction, moreover, your desired workshop was more than experiencing to make replica food !! I think experiencing the traditional replica food making method (Everyday ingredient of wax turned into life-like replica food such as “Tempura” after being dipped into the hot water by putting a little ingenuity !!)greatly helped you have a real experience o... leer más
