Hi, I am Ooshiro. I am a descendant of a real Samurai. I will teach culture to the Samurai transmitted throughout our ancestors. I usually teach samurai culture to Japanese people, but I started this experience three years ago in order to get people from all over the world to know the culture of Samurai. Please experience a real samurai. I am waiting for you! I represented Japan in sword performance at the 2013 Monaco World Theater Festival.
