There’s no better place than Matsumoto City with a real feudal era castle to have your very own Samurai Sword Fighting Experience!

Matsumoto City’s history and its castle (a registered Japanese Cultural Heritage Site), is intrinsically linked with the legend of the Samurai. Experience for yourself their ancestral fighting arts right next to Matsumoto Castle!

Choose the colors of your own outfit, which consists of a Yukata (light kimono), Hakama (wide-leg pants), and Obi (belt). Then select your swords! The staff will dress you like a real Samurai Warrior!
