In Japan, April means spring, cherry trees blossoming and the “Golden Week”, when people take that rare vacation and use that free time to go back to their roots. The Japanese are fascinated with their history and many of them chose to delve into a past dominated by Samurais and Shoguns.

During this golden age, the “country of the rising sun” enjoyed an extraordinary cultural and artistic awakening. In the steps of present Japanese we discover a unique civilization marked by a philosophy, the Zen, and the code of honour of the glorious Samurais.
