Got to see a 1 hour program on japanese culture. Included a traditional tea ceremony, flower arrangment, koto music, kyomai(kyoto style dance), gagaku, bunraku(puppet play), and kyogen(ancient comic play).
They had program books detailing the whole show in great detail in many different languages. the cost of the show was 2800 yen. I only had 1 day to spend in kyoto, so i managed to fit in a whole lot of culture in a short period of time. There was no problem taking pictures during the show.

Directions: the show was at Gion Corner Traditional Japanese Arts Theatre in Kyoto. The show runs from march 1 - november 29. show times were 740pm and 840pm. the location of the building was 1st floor of yasaka
