Tokyo Tour Reviews

Let them hit you in a way that you will enjoy

It was very interesting and fun evening, even though a little exhausting (who would guess :) ). I had no prior experience, but they were a very understanding and helpful. After some basics I join regular members in training (where they let me hit them in practice), after small break there were sparring matches (where they hit me instead, I had no chance :D ). If you are interested in kendo or these arts as whole, it's definitely worth your money and time.

【Kendo】 Genuine Samurai experience in Tokyo

Tokyo
2 hours

My favorite part of my Japan experience!

This was my absolute favorite part of my Japan trip! It wasn't a "tourist attraction" it was a genuine lesson by a true master. There was one other foreigner besides myself & we both agreed that it was such a unique experience. Even with the communication barrier I found it easy to follow along & found it very engaging. I will say I am fairly fit & my calves were certainly sore after the lesson, so be sure you plan a bit of a break afterwards. The location is a touch tricky to locate, but look out for a vending machine with Kendo logos on it! I recommend adding this to your Japan plans immediately!

Kendo challenge

Definitely recommend this as one of the things to do when in Tokyo. No regrets, just a life time memory. Was glad I did this, showed an appreciation of an art hopefully to carry on for generations.
