Seki Sword Tradition Museum (Seki Kaji Denshokan)
Seki Sword Tradition Museum (Seki Kaji Denshokan) Review
Seki has a 700-year-old sword-manufacturing heritage, and you'll appreciate the artistry and skill of Japanese sword smiths at this museum. Three types of metal are used to form blades, which are forged multiple times and then beaten into shape with a hammer. Demonstrations are held at 10, 1:30, and 2:30 on January 2 and the first Sunday of March, April, June, and November. Special displays occur during the Seki Cutlery Festival the second weekend of October. Seki is 30 minutes northeast of Gifu via the Meitetsu Minomachi Line.
