Kosa Town

Samurai swordsmanship

We learn to handle katana sword and practice Kesagiri (diagonal cut) with a real katana. At first it seems scary and difficult because the sword is heavy, but after following the practices and instructions from Sensei, I was able to perform the cut easily. Now I feel like a samurai warrior like in the movie. It was a precious experience. I would highly recommend this trip for anyone who love to experience nature, beautiful scenery while learning interesting Japanese culture. As I muslim, they helped me also preparing halal food and place to pray.
