Story & Recommendation
Enjoy 50 minutes of traditional Japanese dance and music
Located in the middle of Gion, is a large building called Yasaka Hall; inside this building is Gion Corner. You can see maiko perform their Kyomai (Kyoto style) dance, Kado (flower arrangement), Kyogen (ancient comic play), and more, all up close. Also, 7 different traditional Japanese arts are shown, all done quickly. The show is about 50 minutes long. One show starts at 6pm and the second show starts at 7pm. It is perfect for seeing a show before heading out to dinner. It's also popular with foreign tourists due to its convenient location. Besides English, pamphlets come in a total of 10 languages, including Chinese, French, and German. Visitors with an interest in Japanese culture and arts should definitely pay a visit.
