Art & Poetry Experience in Kyoto

Nestled in the heart of Kyoto’s most enchanting Arashiyama district, tour a museum that opens its doors just for you. 

In the company of the museum director, walk on the tatami mat and listen to the spellbinding tales surrounding one hundred poems collected over six centuries. 

Play a card game inspired by these ancient verses to gain a better understanding of Waka poetry. Gaze out at the Katsuragawa River, serene as a painting, and contemplate the beauty of the poems penned by one hundred different poets, including emperors and priests.  

The museum can also be rented for private events and performances, perfect for any aspiring cultural host!
