You'll want to watch the "Mibu Kyogen" in Mibudera Temple for 10 days in a row

A long holiday is approaching and for sure there are many excited people about it.

If you want to taste Spring and Kyoto at the same time, you should try "Mibu Kyogen", in Mibudera Temple.

Mibu Kyogen is a religious play that has a 700 year long history, and preaches the teachings of the Buddha without any lines, but through mimics.

It is held at Mibudera Temple at Setsubun events in spring and autumn: the spring performance is seven days long, from April 29 to May 5.

How about taking this opportunity to see this unique part of Kyoto, which has also become an important intangible folk cultural asset of the country?

From Randen Shijo-Omiya Station, which is the nearest station to Mibudera Temple, you can easily reach places that are perfect for spring outings such as Arashiyama, Ninna-ji and Ryoanji.
