Iaido Katana Experience in Yamagata
Watch and learn a traditional samurai martial art featuring katana
Watch the Enbu of Iai (performance of quick drawing a katana) with an in-depth explanation, followed by a chance to try out these techniques yourself. You'll also learn the basics of Shohatto—the patterned techniques of Iaido (quick drawing a katana). Holding a real katana and cutting through a sheath of rice is a one-of-a-kind experience that will stay with you forever.
