Re: Morihei Ueshiba and Sokaku Takeda in Shirataki

I think I trained with the author of the article in the Dojo in Shirataki on a couple of gasshuku. The Aikikai still maintain a dojo. It's an amazing place. If you practice there over a couple of days, all you can hear is the sound of the river running by the dojo and times stops. The place hasn't changed in over a hundred years, and there's a powerful energy in the village(the best way I can put it). You can visit Ueshiba's shrine too! Highly recommended to visit and train.
