A legendary party returns this summer to
the paradise of Japanese period dramas,
Toei Kyoto Studio Park.
The special adults’ night out takes you on
a trip back in time to the premodern Edo period.
Join the summer festival and indulge
in Kyoto’s traditional performing arts as
you taste delicious local liquor and
savor meals from renowned Japanese restaurants.
A venue full of atmosphere, the flickering light of
the mellow sound of shamisen music,
the fragrant haze drifting from the tavern,
the glamour of the geisha quarters,
and in the alley beyond it,
devil-may-care ronin smugly exchanging cups of sake...
This season’s Uzumasa Edo Sakaba is themed around
the chivalric romance of
the Bakumatsu period
leading up to the fall of the Edo shogunate.
Bakumatsu shishi (political activists)
and the Shinsengumi
(a special police force) make
an appearance among samurai and kimono-clad girls.
And with summer nights there’s always the possibility
you’ll run into peculiar otherworldly wonders.
Uzumasa Edo Sakaba presents its most attractive event
to date in “Bakumatsu Summer Festival.”
Change into your favorite kimono or yukata,
and embark on a journey of Kyoto as it revisits
the late Edo period two centuries ago.

Here are galleries of Uzumasa Edo Sakaba’s
second season “Verdure Vanguard” and
third season “Autumn of Rimpa.” Guests of each event delighted
in the distinct flavors of Kyoto’s local sake and
first-rate cuisine from renowned restaurants.
They got a taste of traditional performing arts and craft demonstrations at
such close proximity they could hear the artists and artisans breathe.
And they strolled about in stylish Japanese-style gowns
in the flattering light of lanterns,
playing their part in the adults’ night out.
