It was great fun and informative. It was a great group of performers who performed with enthusiasm and humor. It was informative and we got to practice some of the moves. We were in several fun pictures with the performers at the end.

Very informative and charming. Not a fight show, but artistic performances mixed with brief explanations of samurai culture. The photo session at the end gives the opportunity to swing a sword under the supervision of one of the Masters, while the staff snaps action shots. Great fun!

Very good! Small dojo with four or five actors. There is no clashing of swords...just reenactment of the ritual dances and explanation of each. Worth the trip.

This was a brillant experience in Kyoto thoroughly enjoyed also by my two sons 17 and 20. Forget the touristy attraction this is the real deal. The group of performers and their company should be thoroughly supported. A wonderful performance to go to in Kyoto.

This is a great show! Costumes, props, narration, this was quite authentic, and a lot of fun. Actors even posed audience members with actors after the show and took photos! It's a very small theater in a basement, but with a pretty good sized stage. Only 20 /- seats, so all are good.

This was a really fun experience with our 12 year old son. Something different and a nice break from the typical Shrine and Temple site-seeing.

The photo makes this look like it is a large venue, however is small venue and personable. Very informative.

Being big fan Samurai fans hubby and I really enjoyed the Samurai performance. Our only regret is we did not sign up for the 2-hr lesson. it would've been twice the fun.

Great show all round! Unlike with other touristy things you can do around the world, you never got the sense that these guys were trying to sell you anything - they were genuinely exhibiting their culture. It was a nice little bonus being able to take pictures with the performers and hold their swords!

Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant.

We didn't know what to expect from this performance but ended up loving every minute of it. The stage is small and personal and we 2 adults and 2 children were the only ones there. Even still, the performers gave it everything and it showed. At times it was moving, funny, sad, but always fantastic.

I can't explain why we were the only ones at this performance, but they deserve a visit!!

A very well done performance. It is like a multi act play. They come out and discuss the meaning in English of each upcoming demonstration. The movements and techniques are great to watch. Good for groups or individuals. Friendly courteous staff.

This ended up being a bit different than what I had pictured. I think mainly because I didn't fully understand that Kembu is a sort of dramatic dance involving swords and fans. Our six- and eight-year olds definitely enjoyed it, particularly when they got to take pictures holding fake swords at the end. As an adult, while it was interesting, much of the show blended into each other as the dances don't come across as differentiated enough to make it interesting through the whole performance. It was worthwhile to see once but I would probably not go back to see it again. It definitely helped to break up the sightseeing of temples and walking around Kyoto so was a welcome respite for the kids and us too.
