Travel Guide - Bizen Osafune Japanese Sword Museum (Bizen Osafune Token Village)

InformationInformation

Bizen Province (today's Okayama prefecture) was one of the major places where good Japanese Katana swords were produced. Due to the location, which is close to the production area of iron sand, the raw material of swords, many swordsmiths lived in Bizen, and the area of Osafune (today's Osafune town) used to have the highest skill level and production level in the sword making industry of Japan.
Bizen Osafune Japanese Sword Museum exhibits Japanese Katana swords from the Kamakura Period (1185 - 1333) to the present day as well as traditional tools for making swords.
Next the museum, there are several workshop buildings where professional swordsmiths and craftsmen are working. Visitors can watch their traditional sword making there, and a process of forging 1,200 degrees Celsius metal, which is demonstrated on the second Sunday of each month, is especially worth watching.
