Retreat yourself in a natural environment not far from Tokyo.
Japanese swordsmanship and meditation/breathing techniques will help realign your body-mind, and find your central axis.
The experiences program is based on samurai wisdom and Japanese spirituality with deep traditional root, combined with sound healing, artistic performance, and the power of nature.
My name is Yusuke Goto, and I offer experiences of samurai culture and wisdom.
Throughout my life as a swordsman, I have been continuously exploring the role of the Way of the Sword in this modern world.
The Way of the Sword is not only about fighting; it is also about prayer and purification. It is deeply rooted in the traditions of Japanese culture and spirituality, and can serve as a guiding light in your life.

After introducing each other, we will visit the local Shinto shrine.
Japanese daily practices are filled with meaningful things, althought they may not be visible to the eyes.
I will take you step by step through Japanese culture - the respect for nature, ritualistic steps when visiting shrines, the idea of YAOYOROZU-NO-KAMI meaning countless gods residing in all beings, and TAMASHî , the Japanese concept of soul.
You will dress yourself in a Samurai-style, with kimono and hakama.
Changing how you dress will help you experientially understand Japanese culture.
I will share the wisdom and philosophy regarding Japanese swords and the samurai culture, that can play a crucial role in the modern life.
Meditation accompanied by instrumental sounds such as the flute
Breathing techniques will also help to calm down your body and mind, together with nature itself.
You will gain more awareness about your body axis, through practicing ancient Japanese style body movements and sword handling.
After a good amount of practice, you will have a chance to use a real sword to cut a straw bundle.
This will be a moment of deep reflection.
An experience beyond words; music and sword dance performance improvised on the spot, infused with the spirit of Japanese sacredness. Art has the power to transform life.
In this experience, you can feel the spirituality that has been cherished and nurtured in the land of Japan since ancient times.
