Pittsburgh Bujinkan Dojo

On July 27, 2018, Hatsumi Sensei received a new award from the imperial house: "Higashi-Kuninomiya Heiwa Shō" (peace award) 東久邇宮 平和賞, in appreciation of Japanese cultural and artistic diffusion and for his services to peace in Japan and promoting internationalism.

NOTE: The private palace Higashi-Kuninomiya is not directly controlled by the imperial family, which is sustained by private contributions rather than from government. This award was created around 1963. Recipients of the award are chosen by elite scholars and only for people who achieve the highest cultural or artistic level in Japan.
