Samurai, geisha and special interest

Description of this category

If you are interested in unique Japanese phenomena, look for tours in this category. Samurai were Japanese warriors who were skilled with swords and bows and protected their lords with their lives. Ninja were Japanese spies skilled in stealth who could move and kill without being noticed. In addition to ninja and samurai, there were many more historical professions in Japan, including geisha (entertainers), who all have their own traditions and fashions. Guides can tell you about their history, separating facts from fiction. You can also wear historical costumes and try your hands at some of the historical weapons and arts to imagine what it might have been like to live in premodern Japan.
