The only of the traditional Kyoto dance performances to take place in Autumn, this is held at the Gion Kaikan near Yasaka shrine as the leaves begin to turn. It was first held in 1894 and is one of the longest-running shows, it is also one of the smallest and has a more intimate feel than others. There are two performances per day and tickets range from 3,500 – 4,000 yen depending on whether you would like to include the tea service. Tickets will be available from September and can be purchased at Ochaya, Gion Kaikan, Kyoto City Tourist Association and Gion Higashi Ochaya Union as well as travel agencies. Please be aware that the website is not up to date.
