Samurai Tour

08,Mar 2013 Events & Tour




Kifu no Sato in the north of Okayama has been chosen as a quality luxury ryokan to participate in the ILTM(International Luxury Travel Market) in Kyoto in March 2013. The ryokan will introduce its own “samurai culture” tour at this event.

We offer a bespoke tour with an English-speaking guide visiting historical places such as the birthplace of the world-renowned samurai, Miyamoto Musashi. There one can see a demonstration of the martial art of iaido (sword-drawing techniques) as well as trying it for oneself. Okayama is famous for Osafune “sword” Town where one can learn how Japanese swords are made directly from the swordsmiths. Also the samurai aesthetic of “wabi sabi” is eloquently captured in Bizen Pottery which our guests (can try their hands at) under the guidance of a master. In addition, we provide a meal as eaten by warlords, a visit to a local sake brewery and for those who wish they can even put on samurai armor to get an insight into their intriguing history and culture.
