Lesson & Demonstration programs in Kyoto

Samurai kembu is one of the Japanese traditional performing arts. We express the Samurai spirit and culture through performances using the sword and the folding fan. SEIGA samurai kembu offers both performances and lessons for tourists as well as lessons for Japanese.
