Gion Corner

Gion Corner is a unique theater presenting one-hour shows of seven of Kyoto's professional performing arts - kyogen classical comedy, kyomai dance, gagaku music of the imperial court, koto harp, bunraku puppet theater, the tea ceremony, and flower arrangement.

Gion Corner is located inside Yasaka Hall on the north side of Gion's Kaburenjo Hall, where Maiko (apprentice Geisha) and Geiko (Geisha) give presentations. Visitors can also experience a genuine tea ceremony and learn about tea ceremony etiquette in a casual atmosphere.
Since explanations of the performances are given in English, Gion Corner is popular among tourists from abroad.
