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 and curves, allowing for a more immersive experience for the audience. There are historical stories and costumes and the opportunity to add a traditional tea service if you are keen. Tickets starts at ¥2,500 for a regular seat, plus ¥900 if you want to add a tea ceremony, while special seats are ¥4,900 or ¥5,500 with tea ceremony.
Performances take place at 12.30pm, 2.10pm and 16.10pm each day. Tickets are available online through the website or ticket sellers PIA (used on 7/11 machines too) between Jan 8th – Jan 20th, Feb 3rd – Feb 17th and then from March 2nd until two days before each performance. Phone sales will begin from April 1st but only for special seating. Unfortunately their website indicates only special seating is available through all means bar the travel agent – but this could be an error. In the past tickets were made available on the day of each show from 10am but this is no longer mentioned (it could still be worth seeing at 10am if you’re in the area though, just in case!).
