In Tokyo we went to Samurai School for the afternoon. We all loved this experience and I was so glad it was completely different to the Ninja one we had already done. First, we got to dress up in proper kimono’s and Samurai riding pants – they even had us put on the real wooden sandals! And then we had to work through the streets of Tokyo dressed up like this and in those shoes! It was a good laugh.

We arrived at the hall and learnt how to hold the sword, strike and with much difficuty place the sword back into it’s holster. Our teacher then had us try and fight each other and work out a fun routine that he would record. The boys loved it and Niki and I were quite impressed with ourselves too! Definitely would recommend this especially for guys!
