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 to behold. This is one of the most affordable shows in the series, with tickets starting at 2,300 yen and go up to 4,200 if you would like a better seat and the tea service included. There are three performances per day, at 12.30pm, 2.30pm and 4.30pm.
