Experience the Elegant Performance from a Shimabara Tayuu in Kyoto



Make your visit to Kyoto an even more special time with this Shimabara Tayuu Experience. Many people will associate Kyoto with the temples and shrines, and of course the traditional cultures of the Geisha and the tea ceremonies. With this experience you will be able to experience another side of Kyoto traditions, and one that is very rare that ordinary people wouldn't encounter.

The Shimabara Tayuu
Not to be mistaken from an Oiran or a Maiko, the Shimbara Tayuu is a high level traditional performance artist that was only catered to aristocrats. Currently there is only a few Shimabara Tayuu that exists, so this is a very rare experience and a rare chance that you can only do here.
