The Samurai Museum documents 700 years of Japan’s most intriguing social class and its effect on the country’s modern life. Learn how samurai culture evolved and see authentic armor, swords, and even firearms (unbelievable, right?) In central Tokyo. There is a guided tour in English and also a show with swords.
The glow of the neon lights of modern Shinjuku has little to do with the samurai spirit. However, a few steps from the hustle and bustle of the streets of Tokyo there is a place where you can trace the evolution of samurai culture from the Kamakura period to the relative modernity of the Edo period.
Take a one-hour guided tour that will introduce you to samurai history, including the rigid moral code that governed them. You can also take traditional swords in your own hands and receive a short lesson from an expert swordsman (it seems that it is more complicated than nailing it from the side of the point).
