Overview

The concept of RAN is to have a fun filled night with traditional music and local sake and beer. Here you can see all the famous traditional musicians under one roof. We invited musicians from all over Japan to come to Kyoto, the centre of Japanese traditional culture to entertain you with this exciting performance. There is a mix of classic songs and songs adapted from pop culture. We invite you to enjoy a few drinks from our selection of local sake and beer while you enjoy the show. We also ask you to join in on the fun by clapping along, waving your arms side to side and maybe even joining the band!

Fun show with a mixed contemporary/traditional music on modern and traditional instruments. The band included the audience in, and had a nice rapport. Good beer, too!

Hello, I think you meant to leave this message to the theater, not to the review. Can you reach out to the theater directly? :-)
