This year's Miyako Odori took place at a different venue as there is work taking place at the usual venue. I booked a ticket online a few weeks in advance of my departure date. There were only tickets available including the "tea ceremony" on my dates and I had heard that the tea ceremony is not worth the money. Whilst... More

Miyako Odori- do book beforehand (we had some Japanese friends book for us though you can do it online). If you choose the tea ceremony you can turn up anytime between the hours stated. You sit in the waiting area and are called through. Eat the sweet first, then drink the tea in 2 or 3 mouthfuls for the genuine... More

With a friend we were determined to see a geisha spectacle. After feeling that Gion Corner is a bit too touristy we decided to go here. Tickets could be bought outside this Cultural Center on the day of the show (running 3x daily from 1st till 16th April in 2017), without akward waiting in the queue for an hour before... More

Went to the Kyō Odori spring dances here. We bought tickets directly from the ticket office onsite and paid extra to include the tea ceremony. The Geiko and Maiko dances were truly amazing and I was so pleased to be able to see them. We paid for second class tickets and had a great view, but I think side view... More

Staying in Gion

Neighbourhood Profile
Gion
Gion is Kyoto's famed Geisha District (called "Geiko" in Kyoto). Though Gion's many tea houses and entertainment restaurants are closed to foreigners, Geiko and Maiko in their traditional makeup with gilded hair in full kimono can be seen drifting the streets on their way to and from work, where they fan dance, sing, and play instruments for customers. Gion lights up at night, when the ancient-looking streets glow with lanterns along the river, where weeping willows catch the starlight and the air is warmed with conversation. Groups pass through to populate the restaurants and bars along the riverfront, but Gion still manages to be a mostly quiet district, due in large part to limited automotive traffic through many of its streets. Gion is a wonderful place to indulge in Kyoto's local and customary cuisines, and is best enjoyed after dark.
