Shirozeme "Besiege the Castle" Samurai Event in Shimane


Shirozeme Besiege the Castle Samurai Event in Shimane.
Eagle Talon is a Japanese animated cartoon series that began in 2006 and has gained enormous popularity. It is about a secret society called Eagle Talon (Taka no Tsume) based in Tokyo's Kojimachi district that makes repeated, but failed, efforts to take over the world, ostensibly to bring about world peace. The full title in Japanese is Himitsu Kessha Taka no Tsume, or "Eagle Talon Secret Society."

Eagle Talon's twist is that it depicts the scheming but ever-failing members of the secret society as the "heroes' and its enemy, who is technically on the "right" side, as ridiculous.

Eagle Talon was created by Ryo Ono, originally from Shimane prefecture, and has since been made into films, TV series and video games.

Eagle Talon takes another step in November this year with the Shirozeme ("Besiege the Castle") event to take place at Matsue Castle in Shimane, on November 14th 2015.

Shimozeme will feature a range of different activities, all based on the warrior samurai theme that Eagle Talon draws on, and including hands-on samurai experiences for participants. The event is foreigner-friendly with English language support available.

Tickets for the Shirozeme event go on sale today, Friday, September 4th 2015. Tickets cost 5,000 yen for adults and 3,500 yen for children. If you want help buying tickets, contact GoodsFromJapan, who will take care of it all for a reasonable fee.
