Samurai/Ninja Special Experience in Kyu-Butokuden hall in Kyoto



How about samurai/ninja experience at National important property "Kyu-Botokuden" hall that was built in 1899.
This is Beauty of Japan special program!

This program will make your dream come true, such as "I like the longing of warlords and Samurai in the leading role, I want to cut the enemy down".
Usually, this sword cutting, we call "tate", is a special technique that only selected people could only learn, such as stage and film actors.
That includes beautiful "form" of acting expression, "attitudes" of deportment, gestures, etiquette, attentiveness, and caring attitude, as well as the discipline of mind. In all, it is one of moral principles, we call "dou". Combining "tate", we can say this is "tate-dou" and you will learn traditional culture of Japan through the "tate-dou".

This hall is located nearby Heian Jingu shrine and it was a martial art master school until early 1900's.
Thus, this place is a sacred place for Japanese martial art and special for listing on Japan's important property.
