Every year, a number of members from around the world express their desire to visit Japan and train for a number of days or weeks at Tokyo JKA HQ.
Those that have made the trip and spent some time in JKA Tokyo have found the experience to be immensely rewarding. Practicing in the very heart of the JKA, they report, has been one of the great highlights of their lifetime, and has added a whole new dimension to their appreciation of karate.
JKA HQ is always very happy to welcome you as their guest. They will give you all the advice and guidance we can during your stay, helping you for example to locate supermarkets, shopping centers, public and recreational facilities, medical facilities, etc. near your accommodation—assisting you in any way they can.
