    Looking for a Japanese Jiu Jitsu dojo in Japan

    Hi all :),

    I am looking for a Japanese Jiu Jitsu dojo in Japan.
    I would be very grateful if you can recommend a dojo that you have tried.
    Despite my best efforts and hours of research online, I've been unable to find a dojo in Japan, would this indicate that JJJ is not practised there ? if so would
    Aikido be a good alternative?
    if so I would be very grateful for a dojo recommendation.

    Best regards,
    Ray

    Are you interested in the historical preservation side of Japanese Jujutsu?

    How's your Japanese? What part of Japan do you live in? JJJ is fairly rare...most of the time I find Jujutsu= BJJ over here. I personally recommend Hiden as a good starting point for finding koryu dojos in general, but the site is all in Japanese.

    As for Koryu.com, it is a good resource but won't help you too much on finding physical training locations for the most part.

    Hi Mas :),
    No, but I prefer JJJ over BJJ

    Thanks nightowl :),
    How's your Japanese? Can understand a few words :), but I will have to rely on English...

    What part of Japan do you live in?
    The plan was to
    1. Find a good dojo
    2. Stay in that area...
    Do you think I can just go somewhere like Tokyo and tryout a few dojos ?and select one ?
