Held by the Miyagawa-cho district of Kyoto, this is one of the younger performances from the city tradition as it only started in 1950. The style is considered similar to Kabuki theater as it has seven scenes and the area has strong links to the art. Performed at the Kaburen-jo theater, the final act contains all of the performers at once and is an amazing sight. This is one of the most affordable shows in the series, with tickets second class tickets available for ¥3,000 and first class for ¥5,000. There are two performances per day, at 1 pm, and 4 pm.
Due to COVID-19, it won’t be possible to book a tea ceremony this year. The website also states that this will be the very last Kyo Odori at the Kaburen-jo, but it’s not clear if that means 2021 will be the last Kyo Odori ever, or if they will be switching to a new venue.
Tickets can be purchased online, by fax (not kidding), through travel agents or at the venue (but only five days before the performance date if at the venue).
