    Great show!!!!

    You should totally check out this group of talented artists jamming on traditional Japanese instruments. Their version to 'my favorite things' was amazing! Highly recommended!!!

    Unmissable music performance

    I booked this last minute through this site after seeing countless positive reviews online, and I was in no way disappointed, although this new show only had a few of us in attendance the performance the musicians put in was like it was to a packed theatre.
    I've watched musical performances all over the world but this one will definitely stick with with me. The show had all Japanese instruments perform songs that have you up dancing, singing along with or just filled with awe at their beauty, all within 80 minutes or so. I was engaged throughout and would see it again tonight if I could.
    I reckon this show will be a sell out in the future so make sure you get to see it while it's still relatively unknown.

    Amazing Night of Live Music!!

    What an amazing night! We could see all kinds of traditional Japanese instruments. shamisen guitar, taiko drum, koto harp, flute and then even join in with piano and play some jazzy numbers as well. The okinawa music was beautiful too. I like how they musicians all looked like they were really enjoying themselves too. We even could get a mini lesson in how to play the drums. The venue is pretty cool too. It's inside the NINJA restaurant but in a separate theatre space. Kyoto is a place where you spend a lot of the day walking around so it was nice to have a seat and a few drinks in a smoke free setting (kind of rare in Japan) The producer Toshi was super friendly and spoke perfect English too. Definitely recommending this to friends!! 5 STARS!!!

    Kyoto music

    The music was good and the people were very friendly, but the atmosphere was kind of weird and boring. I wouldn't say it was a classic Japanese atmosphere, so if that's what you're looking for this isn't it. But if you want good traditional music then this is good.

    Great night in Kyoto!

    Ran Kyoto exceeded my expectations, and had me smiling all the way through the show. The music was great, and the musicians themselves were very informative, and entertaining. They do a great job getting the audience involved in the show, and leave you with a night to remember.

    Catch a great musical show as it picks up steam!

    This was a great show from some very talented musicians with traditional instruments. This performance group is just getting started, and I was lucky to catch the show with only a handful of people. We got to experience some great live music and participate with the musicians, Taiko drumming to Okinawan guitar and everything between. Give it a shot, it's a great evening!

    très beau spectacle!

    Ca a été un plaisir de voir ce spectacle qui regroupe des musiciens talentueux jouant des airs japonais de différentes régions et époques avec des instruments traditionnels ou plus habituels. Le groupe met l'ambiance parmi le public et on peut même participer en s'essayant à un des instruments!
    Une très agréable soirée!
