“Be a Samurai,” Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo offers exclusive guest activity

“Be a Samurai,” a thrilling Japanese cultural experience offered in collaboration with internationally recognized sword artist Tetsuro Shimaguchi’s “Kengishu-Kamui” sword troupe.

TOKYO – Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo, leading Japanese hospitality company Fujita Kanko’s iconic five-star flagship property, announced a new one-of-a-kind activity for its guests: “Be a Samurai,” a thrilling Japanese cultural experience offered in collaboration with internationally recognized sword artist Tetsuro Shimaguchi’s “Kengishu-Kamui” sword troupe.  

“We emphasize authentic cultural experiences,” says Hiroshi Izumi the hotel’s General Manager. “With our magnificent Japanese botanical garden as the perfect backdrop, guests can now revel in the art of Japanese swordsmanship. We hope our international guests take full advantage of this truly unique experience.”

Kengishu-Kamui is a group of “Samurai Sword Artists,” that merges the beauty of form, theatrics, and martial arts. In addition to performing shows and appearing in movies and other events, the group also specializes in sword choreography and direction. Its leader, Tetsuro Shimaguchi, has done extensive work internationally including handling choreography for, and performing in, Quentin Tarantino’s 2003 film, “Kill Bill: Vol. 1.”

The following two plans are available on weekdays through December 28th, 2018:

Samurai Workshop: In this 90-minute workshop, guests learn sword techniques while enjoying a lecture (available in English) on traditional Japanese notions of beauty in form and spirituality. 10:30 am-12:00 pm or 2:30 pm-4:00 pm.

Private Samurai Show: An over-the-top, exquisite experience of theatrical excitement and fine dining. Guests enjoy Kaiseki cuisine, traditional Japanese multi-course dinner, followed by a private performance of stunning samurai feats. The experience is roughly 120 minutes (90-minute dinner followed by a 30-minute show).

In addition, Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo is currently offering various dining plans inspired by cherry blossoms in celebration of the cherry blossoms (“sakura” in Japanese) season. The hotel’s majestic Japanese botanical garden is home to 120 cherry trees representing 20 species, making it one of Tokyo’s best cherry blossom viewing spots.
