The Ultimate Tour through Kumamoto Tradition
Practice archery like a samurai, drink matcha tea, and enjoy a sake tasting at a heritage brewery
Spend a day in Kumamoto City experiencing Japanese culture and tradition with a JTB Global Marketing & Travel tour—from samurai martial arts to leisure activities, all with a certified English-speaking guide.
You will visit a dojo to practice the ancient art of kyudo archery, a spiritual discipline believed to reveal the soul of the archer. Your master instructor will teach you the proper etiquette and techniques unique to kyudo, before you test your newfound skills by shooting some arrows.
The tour includes multiple chances to stimulate your taste buds. In Kawashiri Town, with its well-preserved historic streetscapes, you’ll enjoy a lesson in making the traditional sweets known as wagashi using uniquely Japanese ingredients like sweet bean paste. Once your creation is ready, savor it with some quality matcha green tea.
You’ll also visit Zuiyo, one of the oldest sake breweries in Kumamoto City. Here you’ll learn how to create enticing brews and sample the different kinds of sake at an exclusive tasting.
