Yuji

I have been practicing sword dance-art “KENBU” , a traditional Japanese culture, for 40 years. At the KENBU Competition, the Japanese champion has been awarded seven times and the MEXT Minister's Prize has been awarded four times. At present, I have a senior instructor qualification to provide guidance for later generations, and I am implementing a Japanese culture experience platform so that foreign visitors to Japan and international students can experience real Japanese culture. KENBU is a traditional performing art that embodies Bushido. To experience KENBU is to experience Bushido and to understand the fundamental spirit of the Japanese. Because the spirit of Bushido is still alive in the depths of Japanese hearts. So in our session, you can touch the essence of traditional Japanese culture through the spirit of Bushido.

Where you'll be

The performance venue is a large traditional Japanese room with 32 tatami mats, a 15-minute walk from Nagoya Station.(Tatami mats are made of straw and rush and consist of a thick .) There are restaurants around the venue, and after enjoying the performance, you can have dinner and return to the hotel. There is Nayahashi-bridge 150 meters away from the venue, and you can take a commemorative photo with Horikawa in the background.
