Featuring the dancers of the Pontocho area, this show has it’s own specially-built theater just off Pontocho called the Kaburenjo theater. The stage is designed to enhance the performance; it curves, allowing for a more immersive experience for the audience. Note that this year there is no optional tea ceremony component.
Performances take place at 12:30pm, 2:20pm and 4:10pm each day. “Special” tickets ¥5,500 can be booked online through the website or over the phone. Regular tickets ¥3,000 can only be purchased from a travel agent, such as JTB, View Plaza etc.
