Katana Samurai Sword Making Experience - Tokyo

Katana Samurai Sword Making Experience - Tokyo

Breathtaking craftsmanship The Japanese katana is often idealized as the deadly weapon of samurai. What might be not as well known is that the katana is not only a weapon but that it symbolizes ÔÇťprotectionÔÇŁ both against physical and immaterial foes. At FusahiroÔÇÖs studio, a special type of katana, the ÔÇťmamori gatanaÔÇŁ is produced, which is a talisman sword used in particular for spiritual protection. In fact, these swords were traditionally enshrined in Japanese homes to ward off evil and were part of various ceremonies and rituals for protective measures. These days, there are approximately only 150 swordsmiths in Japan due to the difficulty in getting a national certification and the aging population. Witness the creation of this powerfully symbolic sword with Fusahiro, one of the last remaining Japanese swordsmith.
