This whirlwind “Samurai Fantasy” day is an action-packed event we can hardly wrap our minds around. The day has quite a roster of activities, ranging from costume-donning to photo-taking, bento-eating, and even a chance at giving a real sword a swing (handle with care…). Get a brief run-down of samurai and shogun history before participating in a pop quiz to see how much you learned (and retained).
Join a quick lesson in how to hold a samurai sword, and face off an opponent to see who is the “shogun of the day,” before taking a break to meet with other shogun-hopefuls. The day will close with a traditional dance and festivities. This is considered a “once in a lifetime” chance to wear real samurai outfits and experience what it was like (well, a small taste – minus all of the death and real ruling). The whole family is welcome, and the event will be hosted by bilingual organizers.
How much: ¥3,500
