Fukushima’s Samurai Experience

11:00am – 6:00pm
Free

Become a samurai in Tokyo! Try on real samurai armor to experience the 1000-year-old Soma-Nomaoi festival from Soma, Fukushima Prefecture. Suit up with warrior armor and helmet similar to those worn during the annual festival’s high-speed samurai horse race. Children can try on jinbaori, a type of short coat worn by samurai.

Samurai armor is displayed inside MIDETTE in Nihonbashi during the entire month of September. The “Samurai Experience” where visitors have a chance to wear the armor free of charge happens Sept 12th-16th (Tue-Sat).

Concurrently, a local food fair is happening Aug 26th-Sept 24th. Spend over 3,000 yen and receive a serving of either Kitakata ramen or sweet and spicy pork bowl.

Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
