Kembu, literally meaning ‘sword dance’ is one of Japanese traditional performing arts that shows the samurai’s culture and the spirituality with a Katana sword and a folding fan.
Samurai Kembu Theater, a dojo (training gym) of Kembu, offers both Kembu show and lesson programs for Kyoto visitors. You can learn about, and practice, some aspects of the etiquette of samurai classes with a chance to try on a traditional costume as well as a show performed by Kembu Masters. Here is your chance to step into the shoes of samurai and experience the cultural heritage of Japan!
