One of Kyoto's famed five "hanamachi" - the flower worlds inhabited by the city's geisha and maiko - Miyagawacho will be holding its annual fall production known as Mizuekai.
Performances will be held at Miyagawacho Kaburenjo Theater from October 10.
This is an opportunity for tourists and average people to get an up close look at the geisha in all their finery.
The performances were for many years not held, but in 2006 held again, for the first time in 35 years.
This year some 55 performers will take the stage.
The theater is in the southern part of Gion not far from the Kamo River.
October 10 - 13, evenings at 4 pm
Tickets are 4,000 and 7,000 yen
Telephone: 075 561 1151
