It is a whole new experience. We learned a lot about Kembu, and the best is, you are part of it, all dressed and performing. I loved the experience. I totally recommend it.

This was such an awesome experience! The instructors were very professional and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend doing the longer class. They teach you a short routine and you can record yourself performing it to show off what you learned.

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular
