  • Great performance and artists. Enjoyed every minute of the show. Surprisingly, the hall during a show was not full, however artists delivered a lot of pleasure for my girlfriend and me by their music and interaction with the audience. Definitely recommend and hope to come again!
  • Came with my parents without any expectations and we all had a really great time. The performers are all really talented and I personally enjoyed the solo taiko performance. Using traditional Japanese instruments with a modern twist and engaging the audience in the music made for a really memorable experience. We left feeling good long after the show.
  • We had a brilliant night here, although attendance was extremely low. The band blew us all away. You need to see a performance. The food was excellent and worth the money. Good selection of drinks - including sake - too!
  • Like the traditional music and instruments. Did not appreciate playing of classic foreign songs. Would prefer to see Japanese music. Talented musicians.
  • I went to this when I was in Kyoto because another friend recommended I go. I did not know what to expect, but it definitely exceeded my expectations! It was really good! There were not many people there so it felt like a private show. The musicians played a lot of classical Japanese instruments, and they sounded great. Their passion for the music was obvious, and it made me ever more happy to watch them. The venue sells food and alcohol. I had dinner before, so I only bought beer and sochu. I recommend you go if you are a local and if you are a tourist. They picked a couple people from the audience to play the traditional drums with the band for a song (they taught them the beat), and they picked a couple on their honeymoon. It was very sweet. The whole performance lasted about an hour. If you get there right when the show is about to start, I think they might be willing to sell discount tickets to help fill seats. It is worth a shot.
