Wat je gaat doen

Become a Samurai with a real katana sword and Zen meditation

This is an excellent chance for visitors to get a firsthand look into the world of the samurai. Get a glimpse into the philosophies of Bushido, the way of the warrior, and try your hand at wielding a real katana. Afterwards, practice some inward reflection with Zen meditation, used by the samurai to calm their minds during battle.

-Form Practice-
Before being given a real blade it is important to master the basics. We will begin our training using wooden practice swords and instruct you on the proper grip, posture, and form.

-A Real Katana (Japanese sword)-
After learning the basics, the next step is to wield a real katana, and use it to cut though a goza mat. We will place the goza mat vertically on a special stand and you can put your sword skills to the test.

-Zen (meditation)-
To wrap up the course you will be learn how to meditate using singing bowls. A singing bowl is a type of bell, the sounds of which help to clear and calm the mind. Though this deep meditation you will be able to dissipate some of the excitement from practicing with the sword and also learn ways in which Zen meditation can assist you in your daily life as well.

This experience was one of the highlights of our whole trip. The location and venue are amazing - an original Samurai house in the heart of Kyoto. Watching the demonstration was just incredibly exciting and then actually getting to hold and swing a real katana! Wow! And some Zen meditation too - beautiful. If you are considering booking this experience - then my suggestion would be to stop considering and start booking! You won’t be disappointed - a grade A experience all round. Wonderful. Thank you 🙏

A must do experience when in Kyoto. My two children and I had a great time and was one of the highlights of our trip. We did a couple of samurai/ninja experiences around Japan and this was the only one where my six and nine year old had an authentic experience using live blades. The location, photography and cultural experience with live music was amazing and a bonus.

Amazing experience!! Felt authentic and getting to cut the bamboo with the samurai sword was actually more of an adrenaline rush than I thought it would be. Absolutely worth it!

Looking for an authentic experience like no other? You have found it. Kyoto Samurai Experience was a wonderful, one-of-a-kind, opportunity to wield a samurai sword in the actual home of a Samurai! This experience was both fun and informative. I joined a family with 4 kids, and all 5 of us dressed in Samurai attire, learned about the Samurai history, listed to traditional drum music, watched a samurai demonstration, enjoyed some roasted green tea, learned how to maneuver a practice sword, and then we used a real samurai sword to slice up some tatami mats. After the sword play concluded, we were guided in a Zen meditation with some beautiful singing bowls and treated to a beautiful flute performance to close out the experience. The instructors were friendly and knowledgeable, the interpreter was funny, spoke excellent English and had a great attitude, and the whole experience brought a wide smile to my face from ear to ear. This was by far one of my favorite experiences I had in Japan and I am very thankful to this team for putting this together. Kyoto is an amazing city, with so much to do and see, but if you have the time and the willingness to step off the beaten path, spend the $$ and time to visit Kyoto Samurai Experience. You will be glad you did.
