Shingyōtō-ryū is a Japanese Koryū swordsmanship style that was founded in 1682 by Iba Josuiken Hideaki.
Was an honor having the Sensei pull out his Samurai & teach me the philosophy of swordsmanship, or to-ho-no-sho-shin - "the heart of the sword". #NHKWORLD#twoislandsdigital#realjapan#documentary#samurai
My heart is so full from my experience this past weekend in Komoro, Nagano Prefecture. Endless gratitude to Hinako and her team, as well as to the people of Komoro for their warmth and support. Also thankful that we got home safe in the typhoon... #realjapan#地元民最高#草笛ダメだった
