MIYAKO ODORI, GION KYOTO _ 0576

IMG_4620

Each spring the geisha community of Gion in Kyoto puts on a spectacular dance known as the Miyako Odori. Shows are held several times a day throughout April at the Gion Kobu Kaburenjo. Timed to coincide with the arrival of spring, the ceremony is an absolute must see!
Senior geishas play their shamisen at the side stages and young geishas act the play of the year. There are eight scenes and two to five geishas act in a scene. In the final scene, all geishas, twenty or more, dance on the stage. It’s amazing.
