    Watch the Kamogawa Odori and Suimeikai Dance Shows in Kyoto!

    Watch the Kamogawa Odori and Suimeikai Dance Shows in Kyoto! Kamogawa Odori a very Japanese experience. The Kyoto maiko act men's and women's parts in lovely costumes. The first half was 'The Story of the Ladies of the Minamoto and the Taira Clans' with feisty warrior women and humorous Nekomo-no-Chujo (very well acted). The second half was made up of individual scenes set around the end of the shogunate period, ending with the restoration of the Emperor's sovereignty. Beautiful dancing, music, and stage sets. The programme had a 4-page explanation of the scenes and many photos of participants. I thought the Odori might be aimed at tourists, but the vast majority of the audience were local people and many wore kimono for this special event.

    10% OFF Authentic Kyoto Samurai Experience

    10% OFF Authentic Kyoto Samurai Experience This is more than just handing you a katana and having you chop a goza mat.
    First the setting; this was an actual samurai's house where many of the original construction, wood work and artwork are still intact (I hope they keep it in the house rather than in a museum). Sitting in the room facing the inner courtyard, Tabata-san takes you through the several parts of the course:
    -. History of samurai culture and the house
    - Demonstration of exercises with the katana
    - In the courtyard (wearing the kimono) you start your training with wooden katana.
    - You learn how to handle an actual katana sword
    - Slicing through the goza mat (several times)..of course the anticipated fun part. They put a go-pro on the top of the mat to view actual video from the mat's pov.
    - Back in the room for practicing Zen meditation
    - Shakuhachi flute playied by Tabata-san, very moving and when looking onto the historical courtyard, very contemplative.
    I was in Japan for work and had a weekend in Kyoto and had been faschinated with the culture and was curious about this. The intent of this course is not to make you into a samurai in 2h, but rather to expose you to the different facets of a samura's life and culture. It is not a tourist gimmick , the other members of my class were Japanese (from Tokyo) and speaking to my Japanese colleages I found out that very few have actually even held a real katana. Tabata-san is expert in the arts in the way of the warrior and I sensed from the moment the course began to when we parted. I can truly recommend this activity when in Kyoto, for the setting, the teacher and the experience.
