~ Experience the Traditional Performing Arts of Japan in the Privacy of a Kyoto Machiya ~
Guests will sit down to a short performance, followed by a workshop where experts will guide them in creating a mini-show. Participants will not only learn about the myths and folklore of Japan but also explore the use of musical instruments, masks and other props.
A unique experience created for Shimaya guests, this is highly recommended for families travelling with children or anyone interested in the roots of Japanese culture.
