Spreading Japanese Culture Through the Samurai Theme

Samurai ruled Japan throughout most of the country's history.
Initially, samurai were simply warriors wielding swords and spears.
Using military might, they eventually gained political power to rule Japan.
Then, samurai with not only physical strength but also those with superior skills as strategists and governors started to play significant roles.
Many such samurai, refined in both civilian and military arts, nurtured Japan's traditional culture.
Samurai Style aims to act as a cultural bridge between the world and Japan.
We focus on the samurai to introduce Japanese history and traditional culture to the world through the "samurai" keyword.
We also deliver various samurai-themed products to the world.
