digging this thread up as i do need some clarifications as well..

looking at the gion corner website


it appears that the timings are updated as at 2007 only...

does anyone know if the show timings, typically 7pm and 8pm, are still relevant?

and for those who have attended any of the 7 types of shows available at Gion Corner, which one is your favourite?

generally, how long does each show last?

thank you

You may want to e-mail to clarify the show times for the time of year you are visiting... kanko@pref.kyoto.lg.jp

I e-mailed this before i left and got some helpful replies.

When i went to the show in January (7pm show only) it was all of these in 1 show: tea ceremony, koto music, flower arrangement, ancient comic play, kyoto style dance...so they're not all seperate shows. It lasted approx 1hr.
