take 1, action samurai May 04, 2009
The samurai strolled Japan until the start of the Meiji period, around 120 years ago when they were finally beaten and stripped of their power in the saigo Uprising.

The Eigamura puts us in a timewarp back to the era of samurais, ninjas and shoguns with a setting of a village from that era,where you can see the way of life back then with samurai, geisha strolling the streets.

This place is actually a film set where many of the samurai movies and dramas are actually filmed.

The village also puts on some great shows with samurai fights which perform amazing stunts and you can also see how they put together a movie in the studios. The shows are also very humourous and you don't have to understand Japanese to enjoy the show.

Also don't forget to try the ghost house it is truly gruesome. Overall a fun day, though rather expensive 2200 yen entrance fee. It's about a 15 minute walk from the train station.
aaaaaaahhhh I'm dead

Why is there a ghost house? The spirit of dead samurai is still wondering round? ;D
