Description

Samurai culture, formulated over the centuries, includes the art of ”kembu”, a traditional performing art of sword dancing on stage accompanied by recitation of poetry.
At our theater in Higashiyama, Kyoto, we introduce participants to samurai culture through kembu performances and experiences.
Are you interested in having an authentic samurai experience while in Kyoto for sightseeing?

Our kembu masters are fully proficient in the various schools of kembu, and teach you with easy-to-understand methods.
Learn about the characteristics of Japanese swords, see various types of swords, and feel the samurai spirit contained within them.
We offer 60-min and 90-min experiences, and for either duration you can decide whether you would like to wear a costume (a hakama outfit decorated with a family crest).

We also welcome new students to our school to train regularly in the art of kembu.
Everyone is welcome to join our kembu training, from total beginners unfamiliar with kembu to those with experience in martial arts, swordplay, or dancing.

Please visit our official website to make a booking.
