Story & Recommendation
Fascinations of Kyoto are represented with gorgeous dance and costumes
Miyako dance is held at Gionkobukaburenjo from April 1st to 27th. Shows are performed 3 times per day. (12:30pm / 2:30 pm / 4:30 pm) The origin of Miyako dance is Meiji Restoration which is the big transformation of Japanese political power. The capital of Japan was relocated to Tokyo from Kyoto during that time, and the exposition was planned to maintain the tradition of Kyoto. Miyako dance was started as an entertainment in order to add the interesting aspects with the exposition. The first performance of Miyako dance was held on 1872 at the temporary venue in Gion. It has been continued for more than 100 years. Miyako dance starts with a call and 20 performers who are wearing a same costume and folding fan are coming from the runway located both side of audience seats. At that moment, audience is drawn into the Miyako dance world. The motif of performance consists of 8 scenes of the seasons, and Kyoto's traditional places or each season's atmospheres are represented by the song and dance. The signature point of Miyako dance is that the turning of the seasons (a change of stages) is progressed without downing the curtain. The starting seasons are spring and summer, fall and winter are rotated suddenly, and then the finale is a brilliant spring season again with full-bloom cherry blossoms. The magnificent finale stage is too bright to see! Miyako dance is performed in one hour without a break, so, it makes possible to be soaked in Miyako dance world deeply. ▼Click here for Writer's Blog http://sharing-kyoto.com/Blog/b_Miyako-dance/
