About your host

I was born and raised in Japan. I have studied English in the United States and Australia. As I have lived in and outside of my country, I've learned how a cultural experience can affect one's life. I have a dan for iaido, a martial art that uses a Japanese sword. I hope many people from other countries feel fabulous through this samurai experience.

Where you'll be

We'll be in a place for practice called a dojo, which has a lot of space to swing a sword. There will also be a meditation room for the zazen. At the end, you'll go into the samurai studio for the sword trial and later, get a video of yourself. In general, Japanese people don't get the chance to wield a real katana. However, here you'll be able to slash the rolled up straw makiwara and get the exhilarating feeling from cutting it.
