Minamiza : The Kabuki Theater of Kyoto Higashiyama
#6 of 33 Concerts & Shows in Kyoto
The theatre is incredibly beautiful, inside and out.
We were in the second row of the theatre.
Gion Kobu Kaburenjo Theater
#7 of 33 Concerts & Shows in Kyoto
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.
