#1 of 33 Concerts & Shows in Kyoto
The Ran Theater in Kyoto is a delightful introduction to a world of Japanese traditional music, played passionately by talented musicians on a variety of classical instruments.
We went to the Ran Theatre Kyoto as a part of our Gion Night Walk Tour with Kyoto Fun, and at the theatre we watched an absolutely spectacular performance of traditional Japanese music.

I was slightly worried that the theatre was just going to be katana demonstrations - and there were plenty of those but there were also demonstrations of samurai fan mime as well as some truly beautiful theatre.
The Samurai Kembu Theater first gives a show that describes the ways of the Samurai and very talented artists reenact traditional and contemporary Samurai performances.

We saw this wonderful performance at the Kyoto University of Art & Design as the usual theatre was closed for reconstruction work, The dancing and music was performed mostly by Maikos and some Geikos.
The show immerses you in the spirit of Japan in a nice and confortable theater.

In May the gisha north of Gion were honor bound to put on a 3 week long show at this theatre.
We loved our short time in this authentic Pontocho theater and no we are not Japanese.

I am not an expert on geisha dances, but it had a cultural center (not: theater) touch to it.

The 1 hour theatre show at Gion Corner at 6pm and 7pm gives you a taste of a variety of forms of tradition Japanese entertainment - tea ceremony, flower arranging, harp playing, dance and comedy.
Its a great way to get a taste of a number of Japanese Cultural Events such as the Tea Ceremony, Miako Geishas, Kabuki and Puppet shows.

Kyoto is fun and we found The Ninja Theatre was certainly a 'must-see' venue
There are signs around the shop outside the dinner theater reminding you that weapons are not allowed on carry on luggage.
