SAMURAI KEMBU

Welcome to Samurai Kembu Kyoto!

Samurai Kembu, literally meaning 'Sword dance', is the Japanese traditional performing art that shows the culture of the samurai. In feudal times samurai were said to perform kembu to give themselves courage or to achieve mental concentration. We hope to inform people from around the world about the Samurai spirit and aesthetic sense through the traditional performing art of Kembu.
