Camellia has close friendships with a handful of other businesses offering cultural experiences in Kyoto, that we feel would be of interest to our guests. We’d like to introduce a few of them here.
Wear traditional kimono and hakama to really look the part. Learn about the history of swords in Japan, and how they influenced samurai culture. Experience wielding a samurai sword under the guidance of a master of Iaido, the ancient art of samurai swordplay. Discover how to safely unsheathe and sheathe a sword without looking. Finally, use a real samurai sword to slice through a roll of tatami.
