I train aikido in a group from Tamura sensei.
I will travel to Japan in September and stay for about 10 days there.

Can you suggest some places I could train?

From September 06th to 10th I will be in Osaka. After that I plan to go to Tokyo, till about the 15th.

At first I was thinking about the common names I always see here in aikiweb when people talk about aiki and internal training.

In Tokyo, I would really like to visit Aunkai, but it seems they have training only 2x week, and the "creating foundation" class (I guess this is the most important in my case) is only on Saturdays. So maybe I will be able to attend only one session on 10.09 (assuming I manage to arrive in Tokyo on time). I know there are some guys here who train at Aunkai, so I would like to know if this is ok.

Would I be allowed to train in the dojos of Seigo Okamoto, T. Kuroda, K. Ushiro, for example, even though I have no knowledge in their arts?

What about other places, both in Tokyo and Osaka?

Thank you very much.
