Samurai Craft Tour with 80 Days is a Must Do
Just spent 4 days in Gifu Prefecture with 80 Days and my fabulous guide Ciara Blount on a Journey into the Art of Katana. It was so well organised and I had access into the homes and workshops of the master Craftsmen to get a really good understanding of the life and times of the Samurai warriors. At no stage did I ever feel rushed, in fact, I felt that I was the centre of attention everywhere we went. I got to use the Katana at an event that was arranged for me. !
But it was not all about the Samurai…We visited the Tokugawa Art Museum and the oldest standing castle in Japan, the Inuyama Castle, Monet’s Pond, and we spent a wonderful night in Mino and went round all its amazing shops. I had a Meditation Session with a gentle Buddhist Monk.
The accommodation was great, the food was sublime, and the people in the rural area are so welcoming. Thanks 80 Days and Ciara !!
Definitely, a Must-Do if you come to Japan. This is a quality Tour put together by a professional group of people. (Tripadvisor)
