One more year we wish you a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year from the rising sun.
This time in 2017, a year we hope to be as prosperous and happy as possible.

By the way, we still have some Christmas packs available so take a look at the website and make it part of your collection now, you cant miss it!
This Christmas there will be many surprises that will include exclusive and limited products and the latest developments in the Japanese market.
We are also renovating the web, the blog, social networks and everything related to our services. We also want to offer you the tourist guides that have been so successful in the past as well as different events and contests (drawing, designin, etc.).
In Japan, Christmas and New Year’s Eve are not as lively as in other places but they have a lot of events, folklore and traditions that at least can be interesting to the eye of the traveler.
For the aikidoka the entry of the year “shattering the mirror or mochi” as it is called the Kagami Biraki (carried out on January 11st) has a special meaning because it is also the first training of the year ¨hatsugeiko¨ and with it the beginning of a new cycle. Almost all of these traditions or rituals are Shinto, they are not religious themselves and they are rather inspired by Chinese Confucianism. Anyway, we wish a good training for all the aikidokas around the world. When you want, you are more than welcome in Iwama, where you will discover many things about aikido and its founder, Ueshiba Morihei, Osensei.
