Kyoto CVB Partners With Samurai Performance Troop for Cultural MICE Experiences

The Kyoto Convention and Visitors Bureau has welcomed a new member that will give international business visitors access to one of the country’s most ancient performing arts.

Samurai Kembu Kyoto, a traditional swordplay and performance organization, lets event planners and delegates experience Japanese culture as part of their business program.

The word kembu means 'Sword dance' and is the Japanese traditional performing art that demonstrates the culture of the samurai, the traditional warrior class. In feudal times, samurai were said to perform kembu to give themselves courage or to achieve mental concentration. By participating in a kembu session, delegates can learn about samurai and samurai kembu, and put into practice the etiquette of samurai.

Kyoto Convention and Visitors Bureau’s international marketing co-ordinator James Widgren noted the city's cultural attractions that make Kyoto an attractive place to do business. "Incorporating culture into an event enhances a delegates experience and boosts business within the city.”
