Samurai

My Japanese host family took me on a tour of the area around Sanyo Onoda. We traveled south to Shimonseki, at the tip of Honshu. Near there is the Castle Town Chofu Area. At the museum / mansion of Mori Mototoshi, built in 1898, you can dress up in traditional-style kimono or as a samurai. It wasn't just foreigners playing dress-up. Several Japanese men stepped up to play samurai for a few minutes.
