Many people associate the Samurai with Japan. You can change your clothes to a Dohgi for a full Samurai experience. After the experience, Japanese cuisine will be served at the restaurant. Appreciate a drawing called “Unryu-Zu” (A Dragon and Clouds) drawn by Musashi Miyamoto, one of the most famous swordsmen in Japan.

The “Iai” that you will experience here is a technique to quickly remove your sword from its sheath in order to make a blow to or parry an attack from your opponent. The Shuriken (small-sized and star-shaped weapon made out of iron) was a weapon used against an opponent to reduce the enemy’s strength. The speed and accuracy of this skill symbolize the Samurai style. At the end of the experience, please feel free to take memorial photos of you in a Samurai outfit to add to your album!
