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 ¥2,400 and first class for ¥4,900. You can add a tea ceremony to either ticket for an additional ¥600 (well worth it in our opinion). For students there is a discount available on second-class tickets bringing them to the very affordable ¥1,000. There are three performances per day, at 12.30 pm, 2.30 pm and 4.30 pm.
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).
