If you're in Tokyo with a weekday morning to spare, why not learn to be a ninja at Samurai Sword Play before lunch?

We know, right!!!

There’s a good reason these ancient swordsmen feature in so many movies, TV shows and video games… it’s because, male or female, who hasn’t thought “It would be so cool to be a Samurai!”
