Traditional culture experience program for foreign visitorsJapanese dance workshop

Try on a yukata and experience nihon buyo

Nihon buyo is a type of traditional Japanese dance that has a history of nearly 400 years. It is characterized by uniquely Japanese qualities of elegance and grace. Why don't you try on a yukata and our dance workshop ?
You can wear a yukata and learn how to dance in this workshop for free. A yukata is traditional costume but easy to put on, unlike a kimono. We will provide the yukata and tabi (special split-toe socks). In addition, we hope you will enjoy “Fujimusume”, which is the authentic and well-known Japanese dance.
