Miyako Odori

Top choice dance in Southern Higashiyama

This 45-minute dance is a wonderful geisha performance. It’s a real stunner and the colourful images are mesmerising. It’s held throughout April, usually at Gion Kōbu Kaburen-jō Theatre, on Hanami-kōji, just south of Shijō-dōri. The building was under renovation at the time of research, and performances were being held at Kyoto Art Theater Shunjuza; check the website for details.
