    What to Expect
    Do you have an image that Zazen (Zen meditaion) is difficult?

    No need to worry! Even if its your first time, you will be taught kindly and carefully from the master.

    Zen's philosophy is closely related to the traditional Japanese culture such as 'Kado (Flower arrangement)', 'Sado (Tea ceremony)', 'Judo', and 'Kendo (Japanese martial arts)'.

    We would like you to discover the charm of Zen and the image of Zen's world.

    Then you can experience "the time of dialogue with yourself".

    This experience will be held in the hotel in Tokyo but it is very traditional room for Zen meditation. Also you will be many monks since it is a office of monks. 
    ** Please come with clothes that are easy to move.

    I can’t tell because the event got cancelled two times by beauty of Japan. It’s a pity because I was looking forward to this and then of course disappointed.

    Robot restaurant - rubbish
    This was not what we expected at all - we were expecting sophisticated robots dancing, fighting and serving food and drinks instead we got people dressed in fancy neon costumes mock fighting whilst sitting astride some very basic floats. Do not waste your money on a rubbish show. You need to be either very drunk or under four years old to get any enjoyment from it

    Innovative Visual Use of Digital Technology
    Have never seen anything like this. A new must go place. Application of digital imagery that immerses you in the scene. Simply a wow attraction. Would definitely return again. Advance tickets recommended.

    It is a great way to get around Tokyo and see a wide area. Yoshi our guide was very friendly and informative. We stopped at numerous points of interest. 6 people in the group which was a good sized group. Ebikes make it easy for the less fit. I would certainly recommend it.

    Really Awful
    If you are a 5 year old hooked on gaming this is maybe a good show. Maybe. If not, then it’s a ridiculous, insanely loud beyond need or reason, asinine and outrageously expensive tourist trap. We left a third of the way through. Awful. Really awful.

    Fun, no-stress intro to Sumo
    Place was relatively easy to find with Google. Fun and light hearted introduction to sumo. Wanted to visit a true sumo stable and see a real practice but booked this instead because I was afraid I'd be stressed with my children in tow. Glad I did-we all had lot of laughs, great photos and learned a bit more about sumo. The wrestlers were good natured and friendly. Lunch was good but we were served individual rice bowls with lamb and veggies and a small bowl of chanko prepared by the sumo wrestlers. I thought it would be an individual chanko meal. All in all it was fun time for visitors.

    Just for once in a decade
    Disney is such a magical place, you get inside the park and you already feel in a world of fantasy. However, the queues are more than annoying. 2 hours of waiting sometimes. I am almost sure I am not going back to a disney park soon. Maybe next decade.

    Enjoyable !
    Great way to see parts of Tokyo with an excellent guide (Ted). The bikes were just public ones appropriated for the day, but pretty good. Would recommend.

    A great workout !
    Excellent morning - watching these massive guys go through their routine and the slam the hell out of each other. Very memorable experience. The two hour session flew by despite having to sit cross legged.

    Unique experience
    Buy tickets online before you go. There is a high chance that you will have to queue to get inside. There is not a lot of shade but there are machines that blow cool air while you wait. Big bagpacks should be put in a locker, so bring coins. Let yourself immerse in the light instalations. Take your time exploring everything. There is an interactive zone which is great for kids.

    Great experience
    I went with some visitors and it was a great experience - you so up close and personal to the wrestlers. Would definitely recommend! Directions to the event were very clear and it was very easy to find. I will definitely do again with other visitors!
