Hello, everyone !
I'm the master and founder of our Samurai Art - BUGAKU 武楽.
It's the dynamic performing arts; the cultural fusion of Japanese traditional martial arts and Japanese traditional performing arts like Noh-theatre that Samurai practiced and loved.

"Great Performance! This is the Art!"
- by Guccio Gucci the 4th

With over 30-year martial arts experience, I've taught BUGAKU for 15 years to Japanese and foreign students, and performed all around the world such as London, Florence, Berlin, Paris, Moscow, Jerusalem, Shanghai, San Paulo and more.

I received three Higashi-Kuninomiya Imperial Awards for the international cultural and peaceful contribution in Japan, and in 2019, received the 1st prize selected by the audience in the international theatrical prize in Milan !

Co-host Makoto is an assistant & one of BUGAKU instructors

This was a delightful experience! To get to do this in-person would be incredible but highly unlikely for most – so it's amazing to get to do this remotely and get a glimpse of Japan and Samurai history and culture.

Very fun and educational experience. Koshiro is a great storyteller. The stuff he showed were really cool. I would definitely recommend this experience to my friends and family.

This was a very informative, fun and engaging activity for my small group of teen students. They enjoyed learning more about the history of Samurai.

This experience was one for the books! How often can you say you trained with a Samurai in Tokyo! The minute you join the zoom, you are warmly greeted by Makoto who shares the incredible history and background of the Samurai’s. She really gets you excited for the next segment where Sensei Koshiro showcases the art and symbology of Samurai weapons and armor. They save the best for last where you immerse yourself into the craft of Samurai swordsmanship, learning how to wield your makeshift Katan (sword) and demonstrate your skills. I highly recommend this experience!

We chose the Learn and Train with Samurai experience to honor a milestone for a coworker. We enjoyed learning about Samurai history and culture, including seeing actual armor and weaponry along with photographs. Makoto was a gracious co-host and we enjoyed learning practices and moves from Sensei Koshiro. I would recommend this experience to families, friends, and work colleagues who are interested in learning more about Samurai culture.
