Do the sword experience. The other experiences were a little lame. With the sword we learned a little about the etiquite and then got to slice a bamboo mat. Very worth while. Only problem was finding the place. Google maps and directions were needed.

A fun experience for a grownup samurai and ninja fan. Got to throw plastic shuriken and try on some fun samurai armor. The museum tour was very informative about Japanese history and the Samurai. Also kid-friendly.
