Make your own sword in the same process as a Japanese sword

In the same process as making a Japanese sword, we will make a sword-shaped sword with a common pattern (Tomozuka) with a blade length of less than 15 cm. You can spend a day learning about the culture of Japanese swords and have a unique and in-depth experience.

A charming swordsmith can tell you a story about Japanese swords that you can't hear anywhere else.

The first part of the experience is a story about the history of Japanese swords and how to appreciate them! There may be stories from young swordsmiths that you can't hear anywhere else.

It ’s a valuable experience to experience Japanese culture.

You can spend a day learning about the culture of Japanese swords and take a step further.

    Guest user子供たちの春休み一番の体験でした!

    戦国武将が大好きな8歳の息子と参加しました。体験前に刀鍛冶の先生が教えてくださる日本刀の歴史や鑑賞方法といったお話は、大人向けの内容にも関わらず、子供でもわかるようにかみくだいてとても丁寧に説明してくださったので、息子もかなり新しい知識を吸収できたようでした。
    実際の体験では、最初に見本を見せてくださったあとは基本的に本人主導で適宜アドバイスを出しながらやらせてくださるので、「自分でできた!」という達成感がとても大きかったです。
    基本は大人向けの体験なので、気軽に子供が誰でも楽しめる体験とは言いませんが、歴史好きの子供であれば、小学校低学年であっても、火傷の危険などをしっかり理解させた上で、十分に自分の力で楽しむことができる体験だと思いました。とにかく、半日でたくさんの知識と経験を吸収できる、素晴らしい体験でした!
