Gion Corner

Gion Corner is a place where you can enjoy seven types of traditional performing arts.  They are kyo-mai (Kyoto style dance) performed by maiko, tea ceremony, flower arrangement, koto (Japanese harp) music, Gagaku (Japanese classical music), Kyogen (traditional Japanese comic theatre) and Bunraku (traditional Japanese puppet theatre).  Here you can watch Japanese traditional performing arts in ‘digest’ form all on one stage. 

There is also a maiko gallery in the lobby, which displays images of the annual events held at five geisha districts of Kyoto.  You will also find maiko’s ornaments such as flower-decorated hair pins together with their various hairstyles.

Located in Yasaka Hall next to the Gion Kobu Kaburenjo Theatre, the venue has a very international flavor, as it is popular with both tourists from Japan and overseas.
