Very enjoyable theatre for everybody, since the Gear performance is non spoken . A real theatre for getting amused in 1,5 hrs. If you're in Kyoto, have a look for yourself .

We had a great fun - one of the highlights in Kyoto. It is very dynamic, the set, the cast of 5 members, each with different skill, were absolutely amazing. The show was fun, very enjoyable and would highly recommend it to everybody.

This was such a great show! It was wordless, so a perfect situation for non-Japanese speakers. I liked that it had a loose story frame- that was a good way to present the impressive performances. All the performers were so awesome! I liked the Mime...More

Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find
themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited
by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of
fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are
piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed
outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub
for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes.
