Culture Experience: Zazen Meditation and Iai Sword Drawing!

Shonan Area Half day 3

This is a Japanese cultural experience. You can visit a temple for meditation, which is normally prohibited to tourists, as well as visit a swordsmith to learn about the craft and the art of quick drawing. If you time your visit with the blooming of the hydrangea, you’ll get a taste of old Kamakura’s atmosphere.
