Kyoto Samurai Experience Kyoto
From the introductory history lesson, the beautiful old house, the amazing display of the sword master's skill...it was all amazing.
The class takes place in an authentic samurai home and Shogo, the lead instructor, provides interesting history about the house and the bushido way.
