Our home Dojo is located in Kobe, Japan, which is just 40 miles away from our sister city of Himeji. This beautiful town became a Phoenix Sister City in 1976.
Pictured here is Himeji Castle (姫路城, Himejijō) which is considered a national treasure. This large and well-preserved castle is actually one of Japan’s twelve original castles, having survived war, earthquakes, fires and other tests of time.
