Sure, you could spend your next day chilling out. You could take a dip in the hotel’s pool. Or you could become a skilled Japanese warrior for the day – you know, just for something different.
Japan’s five-star Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo is offering guests the chance to be a samurai in a unique 90-minute workshop. Led by internationally recognised sword artist Tetsuro Shimaguchi’s (of Kill Bill: Vol. 1 fame) “Kengishu-Kamui” sword troupe, the one-of-a-kind class will teach guests sword techniques and traditional Japanese values. Sign us up!
If you’d prefer to watch the experts do it, the hotel’s Private Samurai Show is also sure to be a hit. An over-the-top, theatrical display of impressive samurai feats, the show includes a night of Kaiseki cuisine (a traditional multi-course dinner).
