The Samurai Museum in Shinjuku
We visited the Samurai Museum on a recommendation from a friend who had previously visited Tokyo, and it didn’t disappoint. When you visit the museum, they take you on a guided tour. Although I’m not usually one for guided tours, I really enjoyed this one. The guide spoke perfect English and really got into the history, tradition, and artistry of the Samurai. It was really interesting to learn all about the Samurai and I enjoyed the tour very much. After walking you through many examples of samurai armor and weaponry, you will be treated to a demonstration of samurai fighting forms and will even get the chance to play dress up a little and try on some armor yourself. This was a highlight of the trip, for sure, so if you’re at all interested in samurai, definitely check this museum out!
