maiko-pontocho芸舞妓、春めいて 上七軒・北野をどり衣装合わせ

Every spring the respective "hanamachi" - areas where geisha work and live - put on performances.

In the oldest of the areas, Kamishichiken, the famed Kitano Odori will be held from March 25 - April 7.

A fitting session will be held on March 18th.

This year 29 geisha and maiko will be dancing and performing at the Kamishichiken Kaburenjo Theater.

In a traditional dance performance entitled "Snow Covered Bridge," the love story of a mythical beast known as a "Tengu" and a human woman is depicted.


Performances are held twice daily, at 1:30 and 4:00 pm. Tickets are 4,000 yen (4,500 yen with tea).

Telephone: 075 461 0148

Note: Ichiraku, the woman pictured, does not work in the Kamishichiken geisha area.
