Fukushima’s Samurai Experience

12th Sep–16th Sep, 2017 11:00am – 6:00pm

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.
