'SAMURAI KEMBU' Enjoy Samurai experience in Kyoto

2015.06.26

Introduction

KEMBU 剣舞, a Japanese traditional performing art that shows the sprit and the culture of the Samurai.

Kembu, literally meaning "sword dance", is one of the Japanese traditional performing arts. Wearing Samurai clothes, holding a sword and folding fans, the samurai spirit is expressed through this traditional performing art. In feudal times, samurai were said to perform Kembu to give themselves courage or to achieve mental concentration.
