The BUGAKU – Samurai Art Experience combines martial arts with traditional performing arts. The BUGAKUZA serves as the headquarters and training center for BUGAKU, a comprehensive art form that combines ancient Japanese martial arts studied by samurai with Noh, tea ceremony, and other samurai culture. The BUGAKUZA, which has staged numerous performances around the world to convey the beauty of Japan and the spirit of harmony to the world, holds regular BUGAKUZA Night performances where visitors can experience and practice iai (the art of drawing a sword), naginata (Japanese halberd), and other martial arts, as well as watch a BUGAKU performance. There is also the Samurai Gallery which exhibits armor, swords and other weapons, as well as Noh masks and costumes, while Samurai Experiences targeted at overseas visitors and local foreign residents are run year-round.
