Samurai Yakata is a culture house in Kanazawa’s historic area, located near to Kanazawa Castle and Kenrokuen Garden. Here you can experience traditional music, dances etc. and even wear traditional costumes. We perform a traditional show twice a day (12:00 and 15:00), including taiko, shamisen, dances and stage combat performances. The show is a pay what you decide (PWYD) theater, so there is no need to book a ticket in advance. You can also have a dressing experience, trying Samurai, Ninja and Oiran costumes or even the Samurai Armor! We have a professional photographer available for you, but you can also purchase a selfie plan if you want! Other than this, you can experience the culture closely by trying to play the shamisen, fight with the sword using the kenjutsu technique and so on. Also, if you are organizing and event in Kanazawa, you can book our artists to prepare an opening performance for your event.
