dear my friend,i dnt think u can find so easy that maybe only by internet.better search in japan.
You can find some swords but of course they are not sharp. Because real sharp japanese swords are accepted as weapons and as I know(in the past I wanted to buy one as well) they are forbidden to take them out from their country.

Sorry but i dnt have any info about where you can buy those japanese swords.
I just can say gittigidiyor is a trustworthy website. You can buy from there.
Anywhere in Turkey you can buy a lot of different Katana swords in souvenir shops all around the streets for under 20 dollars I think if you know how to bargain, the thing is that they won't be sharpened and won't be of high quality, but you could also try buying one and sharpening it at your home country.
Hi Alicia ! Istanbul ıs not the best place for searching Japanese Swords but you can also find them on internet sites.
I suggest you to search it from orginal shops.
I am very sorry..But someone wrote that " Anywhere in Turkey you can buy a lot of different Katana swords in souvenir shops all around the streets for under 20 dollars "...

How can it be?
They are fakes and they are not good at all.
Just wasting time and money if you buy them.

We are talking here about the good ones.. Must be handmade and the price start from 1000 USD and goes ofcourse till 20.000-30.000 USD . These ones ofcourse not possible to find in Istanbul as far as ı know after my deep search.
You can find things like that in terms of as a souveneir, in Eminönü Şark Han, but they wont be sharp and They'll be in good in just look not in quality. As far as I know there was a shop in Kadıköy but not recently know if it's open.
Talking through experience, try Beyoğlu Spor (roots of fameous AEK of Greece) which is located in Taksim Square. It's a very old sports club of Istanbul and they are quite expertised in Ken-Do.Address is: Beyoğlu Spor Kulübü, Büyük Parmakkapı Sokak Enjoy, Melis :)
