Visit a knife workshop in rural Gifu. Here you will learn traditional techniques from an expert swordsmith. Forging a knife is an intricate process, but over the course of today, you will create your own masterpiece. You’ll have lunch with the swordsmith, and the opportunity to ask questions about the process, the craft, and this way of life. This is a real dusty, in-use workshop, so expect to be hot in summer and cold in winter. This is a rare and brilliant opportunity to dive into Japanese culture.
