Kyoto Samurai Experience

Enjoy a Samurai show in Kyoto, wear a traditional Samurai's armour, take a katana and learn from a Kembu master in a class. You can choose between the complete experience, just the class, or just the show.

The Samurai Experience

The art of Kembu (sword show) is one of the most important Japanese traditions, reflecting the perfection of the culture of the Samurai, a group of warriors who governed Japan for seven centuries.

Samurai culture remains a part of life in Japan thanks to the efforts of the masters who teach this art. In the Kyoto Samurai Kembu Theater, you'll have the opportunity to learn all about the Samurai. This experience lasts two hours.

Then we'll meet outside the theatre and, the first thing is an hour long exhibition from authentic samurai. As well as their impressive skill with a sword, we'll enjoy the ancient stories that capture the essence of this noble and ancient culture.

Keeping in the spirit of things, we'll then head to a class given by an expert in the Samurai performance art. We'll equip ourselves with traditional garb, and the Kembu masters will teach us how to use a katana: not quite as easy as those expert samurai made it look!

Once we've learnt the technique, know how to perform the ritual greeting and finish a fight, we'll do a photo call in traditional dress and receive a certificate of 'Samurai Instruction': something to make your family and friends jealous!

Show Only

When making the reservation, you can choose to only see the samurai show. In this way, you'll see the Kembu professionals at work: a perfect introduction to Japanese culture!

Important Information

The Samurai experience is for over 5s only.
