This is Cool Japan! Experience the world of bushido - samurai chivalry

It is said that samurai warriors would perform the traditional "kenbu", a dance with sword and fan while wearing traditional montsuki hakama, to focus and encourage themselves before going to into battle. The Samurai Kenbu Theater is becoming more and more popular, especially among foreign visitors, who have been flocking to the venue to experience the samurai spirit and sense of beauty and immerse themselves in "Japaneseness". And don't forget the "Samurai Kenbu Experience Trip", where you can put on traditional samurai clothes and learn about samurai manners and how to use a sword.
