Free English Tours of Sekigahara!
Thanks to Gifu Prefecture and Sekigahara Town, I’ll be hosting two free tours of Sekigahara, site of the greatest and most decisive samurai battle in history.
The tour includes a look at the battlefields, a full English explanation of the lead up to the battle, as well as details on the battle itself, the participants, and the result of this major turning point in Japan’s history.
The itinerary is slightly different each tour, The March 10 tour offers tour members the chance to wear samurai armour and learn a number of swordfighting techniques. The March 17 tour includes working with a traditional swordsmith to make a samurai knife, which can be taken home as a souvenir.
The tour is open to non-Japanese currently residing in Japan only, and numbers are limited to the first 20 respondents for each tour. Check the details below! Bookings can be made by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
