Experience SAMURAI !!
I'm the master and founder of our Samurai Art - BUGAKU 武楽.
It's the dynamic and stylish performing arts; the cultural fusion of Japanese traditional martial arts and Japanese traditional performing arts like Noh-theatre or tea ceremony 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 "1st Premio del Pubblico" in the international theatrical prize in Milan.

It's amazing to practice with the weapons and wear the armor from the medieval Japan. The attention, care, and quality of this experience is extraordinary. I highly recommend this to anyone interested in the samurai period in Japan, or the medieval history general.

On our last day in Tokyo, my partner and I booed into the samurai experience expecting to get some insight into samurai culture and traditions. What we received was so much more!! Not only did our sensei welcome us and make us feel instantly comfortable but his amazing and insightful knowledge really helped immerse us in activity! After getting to know about samurai culture we then headed to the dojo where he taught us some samurai movements and incorporated weapons into the teaching. The class was well structured and sensei Koshiro was able to break down movements with ease as well as provide specialised attention when we required help. He also took heaps of photos and videos for us which we absolutely loved! His professionalism was outstanding and the whole experience left us feeling utterly fantastic!!! It is a once in a lifetime experience that I would recommend to absolutely anyone thinking about it! My advice to you reading this review, stop reading and start booking!!! 11/10 🤩🤩🤩🤩
