Murayama is the birth place of Iaido – a Japanese martial art focused on quick and controlled mastery of swords. That spirit lives on today in modern Murayama with experiences being held for visitors to try the art as well as shrines and monuments related to Iaido’s history.

Murayama also boasts beautiful natural scenery with flower gardens available for you to breathe in the fresh air and relax as you explore the city.
