This Budokan is an outstanding and grandiose bulding , original in its architecture, symbolic in its form and historic because it brings together various fencing schools of the way of sword.
On may 18th 2008, an official exchange of flags happened between the area of Rhone represented by the School of miyamoto musashi of france and the province of Mimasaka represented by the school of miyamoto musashi of japan.
On jun 13th 2008, in france, the rhone's flag raising at the Memorial Niten ichi ryu sets definitely the links between our countries and our cultures.
