Great to be able to see the swordsmiths at work A couple of days ago we went to Okayama to visit friends and they very kindly took us to the village as they knew I was interested in Japanese swords and history.
Only for sword lovers. I came on a Saturday afternoon and all the workshops were closed for some reason which was kind of a bummer. If you're (really) into Japanese swords then you'll love this place.
Wonderful place at festival time In a seat-back pocket in a taxi, I happened to find information about the annual Bizen Festival.
