What you'll do

We’ll be performing Kabuki Buyo:Japanese traditional dance, which originated from Kabuki. I’ll show you how to wear a yukata, a type of kimono. After we’re all dressed up with our yukatas, we’ll go out to enjoy lunch. We’ll go to a soba (buckwheat noodle) or chinese restaurant nearby if you'd like. During lunch, I’ll decide on a cultural topic for our dance from the platform which I run, or my life story :why I'm dancing and what I want to do now. After lunch, we’ll start dancing. Kabuki dance has its roots in Kabuki traditional drama, which has a strict rule that it should only be acted by males. However, Kabuki dance is for everyone and is more casual. It's fun, so let's learn together.

Yori

Kabuki Buyo is also called Nihon-Buyo or Nichibu in Japan. It's Japanese traditional dance which originates from Kabuki. I'm a Kabuki Buyo dancer. My mother is a first-class dancer and I’ve been dancing for over 25 years. Now, I teach the dance too. I think it’s so beautiful. I would love to teach you how to dance Kabuki Buyo. And I'm running a website, which introduce Japanese cultures by performers. The website is WAMONOBITO (https://www.wamonobito.com/). We would love to tell everyone charms of Japanese culture.

Where you'll be

We’ll be in our training quarters, which have a large wood stage and a tatami room (a room lined with traditional straw mats). We’re lucky to have such a spacious stage and you’ll be training on the same stage that’s used by one of the top Kabuki dancers.

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be canceled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside of the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 5 guests ages 4 and up can attend. Please let me know if you have food allergies. Please bring socks, leggings or short pants, and a tank top to wear under your yukata.

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

More tips

Please tell me your height, hips and gender to prepare your yukata, especially if you want to wear LLsize or more, please tell me as soon as possible. It will be easier for you to walk if you bring sandals to wear. My training room is around a 30-minute train ride from central Tokyo.
