What you'll do

Make your own way to "Bugakuza Tokyo Samurai Gallery" located in central Tokyo. I, the founder of art BUGAKU, will welcome you with a bowl of Japanese tea. First get to know the background of BUGAKU as well as the history of samurai while browsing through impressive collections of samurai armors, swords, costumes and face masks. Feel free to take photos of these stunning pieces and appreciate the fine details. After changing your clothes to our special training outfits , Let's start to practice Samurai Martial Arts! First part is basic Samurai movement lessons including Ninja-walk. And we move to lessons with weapons of your choice; katana - metal sword, wooden sword, double-swords, or naginata - Japanese long halberd. Not only will I teach you the proper form but the long-held samurai code of honor. Learn how to carry yourself like a TRUE SAMURAI! Finally, with nice posing advise, we'll have photo session of you all. During the lesson, we'll take pics & movies and send them to you via e-mail or SNS! ■Other Experiences Try Samurai Armor +Martial Arts Lesson https://www.airbnb.jp/experiences/715674 Samurai Performance LIVE Show +Gallery https://www.airbnb.jp/experiences/373476

Experience SAMURAI !! I'm the master and founder of our Samurai Art - BUGAKU 武楽. It's the dynamic and stylish performing arts; the cultural fusion of Japanese traditional martial arts and Japanese traditional performing arts like Noh-theatre or tea ceremony that Samurai practiced and loved. "Great Performance! This is the Art!" - by Guccio Gucci the 4th With over 30-year martial arts experience, I've taught BUGAKU for 15 years to Japanese and foreign students, and performed all around the world such as London, Florence, Berlin, Paris, Moscow, Jerusalem, Shanghai, San Paulo and more. I received three Higashi-Kuninomiya Imperial Awards for the international cultural and peaceful contribution in Japan, and in 2019, received the 1st prize selected by the audience "1st Premio del Pubblico" in the international theatrical prize in Milan.
