Ancient Katana Sword Making Tour
- Half Day
Sword forging is one of the oldest and most famous Japanese traditional crafts. It was developed throughout Japan’s long feudal era when the samurai class ruled the provinces of Japan. The country’s finest swordsmiths have preserved their techniques for forging a sword and passed it on from generation to generation.

One of the most famous swordsmith’s ateliers is Yoshihara Yoshindo’s laboratory. This family-owned workshop has a rich history in sword-making and has produced some of Japan’s finest swords.

Be accompanied by an English-speaking guide who will provide a private tour of Yoshihara’s swordsmith atelier, located just outside of central Tokyo, in the northeast area of the city.

This is a very exclusive experience as the laboratory is normally not accessible by the general public. This is a rare chance to witness authentic Japanese blacksmith techniques and learn about the development of sword making throughout the ages.
