Koshiro Minamoto is the founder of a school of the BUGAKU performing artform that blends martial arts such as iai (sword-drawing) and naginata (a Japanese polearm) skills with the attainments of the samurai, several aspects of the tea ceremony, and light.
He will swoop down together with Tsukihime to guide you to another of the tales hidden within the Palace of the Dragon King.
This meeting between skills backed by tradition and ART AQUARIUM’s interpretation of the Palace of the Dragon King (the venue concept for this summer) is your chance to experience a side of Japan that is both authentic and entirely new.
For one very special night only, we invite you to enjoy a drink and witness this dynamic, stylish presentation of traditional skills and the aesthetics of space, Japanese swords, martial arts, and dance.
Koshiro Minamoto (founder of a school of the BUGAKU), Tsukihime, etc.
BUGAKU (Samurai Art)
The Samurai Art of Bushido and Traditional Performance: With “the beauty of martial arts” as its theme, Bugaku reconstructs the ancient martial arts actually practiced by the samurai during their era and blends them with other aspects of samurai culture such as the tea ceremony and the skills and attainments of the samurai.
Set to music performed on traditional Japanese instruments such as the biwa (lute), koto (zither), shakuhachi (flute), and taiko (drums), this dynamic, stylish cultural artform has a sense of originality and innovation, while remaining unmistakably grounded in the traditional culture of Japan.
