★ Maiko-san Dance Performance Every Sundays



This is just a quick information!

If you're planning to visit Heian Jingu shrine on Sundays, and have enough time, Why don't you drop in "Freaikan" after lunch time!

The newly built facility, "Museum of Traditional Crafts",



This is the attraction museum, introducing Kyoto's traditional crafts and cultures.







Now they are welcoming the visiters with a special event.

Maiko-san are coming on Sundays to the "Freaikan"!



This event lasts until next year of March, 2010! Please do not miss!



MAI, "Maiko, Kyoto Traditional Dance"





and explanation of Maiko dress, tradition, etc. (sorry, in Japanese only)





Here is sample of explanation;

Ornamental floral hairpins, Nishijin textiles, Kyo Yuzen dyed fabrics, Kyo fans etc... the adornments worn by the elegant Maiko are the result of the long cultivation of traditional craftsmen and each item is a shining example of the artisan's craft.




Come and see the world of the Maiko, the people that wear the beauty of Japan! :)






There are three sessions, each session is around 30minutes.



For each session you have to get in the line to come closer to the stage in the room, and after the show you have to move out.

* I hope you would not be trapped in the large group of powerful asian tourists...


No Admission Charge

Start: Every Sundays Three sessions during 2:00PM - 3:30PM








Traditional Craft Artisans Demonstration is also held.








Times: Every Saturdays and National Holidays 10:00AM - 3:30PM





Fureaikan is located in Miyako Messe, near from Heian Shrine.
