Special Weekends at the Stories of Samurai Women Exhibition

Join us for the Samurai Special Weekend!

Don't miss the opportunity to participate in this extraordinary journey into the heart of Japanese culture at the Stories of Samurai Women exhibition, included in the entrance ticket.

Samurai Special Weekend
29 - 30 September and 1 October!

Get ready to immerse yourself in the Katana Market , where you will find the perfect katana for you! Explore a wide selection of wooden Japanese swords: some adorned with engraved details or inspired by Benjamin Lacombe's illustrations, others designed for kendo-style training. Here you can discover the katana that best suits your style and take home a special souvenir from the exhibition.

Furthermore, we will celebrate TSUKIMI (月見), the Moon Festival! This Japanese tradition pays homage to one of nature's wonders: the autumn moon. Japanese writers have identified the month of September as the best time of year to admire the moon, as it shines with particular intensity.

This year, Tsukimi falls on September 29th, and you can celebrate with delicious mochi, an authentic Japanese delicacy available exclusively in our gift shop all weekend!*
