Smile Question

I have a question:
Is it possible to study Aikido at the hombu dojo in Japan and work/live there as well (something like an intern)?

Thanks

If you mean the Aikikai Hombu, the answer is No. They stopped the practice several years ago.

Best regards,

I believe Mr Goldsbury means that you can practise at Hombu, but you can not live in the dojo.

Uchideshi Programs

Living and studying in an Aikido dojo is an uchideshi position. While Aikikai Hombu dojo may not have such a program, there are other dojos which do.

Aikiweb has a listing of uchideshi programs here. Most of them are in the USA, I know some Japanese dojos also have them. Perhaps a good web search will bring some viable options.

Good Luck

It is not practice that makes perfect, it is correct practice that makes perfect.
