{"reviewer_id":"F572EDF7400B7273D058F16F120E37A8","reviewer_name":"CZ-Milka","review_text":"We were there on April 5th. We had \"special seat\" tickets (4,600 JPY per one) that included a tea ceremony. There were a lot of people. We were almost pressed as the last to the room where the tea ceremony is held. Geisha was already there and the tea ceremony performed so we did not see her come and did not see the beginning of the ceremony. We were settled in the last, I think seventh (!) row, with all the chairs, of course, on the same level, no elevation. We saw only the top of geisha’s hair! So we stood up to see the tea ceremony but were asked to sit down to eat the cookie and drink the tea. We had to be very fast, we did not even finished it and the people in the front rows were getting up and leaving and a new group came in.\nOn the internet it is also often said that the tea ceremony is an opportunity for photographers, but it is not allowed to take pictures there. I wanted to take a photo of our view (people‘s backs) for this review but I was immediately admonished and I do not even have that picture. On the other hand visitors in the front row used phones and cameras to take pictures right in front of geisha, they showed pictures to everyone and no one cares! Terrible, my worst japanese experience. Lose time and money!\nThe performance itself is quite nice. But last year we were at the Kamogawa Odori show at the Ponto-chō Kaburen-jō theater and although there was not so much geishas in the show, it was a bit longer and more varied. Thus, in my view, the performances are essentially comparable but the tea ceremony at Ponto-chō Kaburen-jō was a chamber (small group) and quiet, so I strongly recommended visiting this theater and show instead of Miyako Odori. Tickets are almost the same price (JPY 4,800 per one).","review_rating":1.0,"sentiment_class":"unknown","sentiment_result":0.6896931968421051,"sentiment_breakdown":[["We were there on April 5th.",["unknown",0.60384107]],["We had \"special seat\" tickets (4,600 JPY per one) that included a tea ceremony.",["positive",0.9522721]],["There were a lot of people.",["positive",0.81322676]],["We were almost pressed as the last to the room where the tea ceremony is held.",["positive",0.96248704]],["Geisha was already there and the tea ceremony performed so we did not see her come and did not see the beginning of the ceremony.",["positive",0.8739494]],["We were settled in the last, I think seventh (!",["unknown",0.7777688]],[") row, with all the chairs, of course, on the same level, no elevation.",["unknown",0.34067094]],["We saw only the top of geisha’s hair!",["unknown",0.68110526]],["So we stood up to see the tea ceremony but were asked to sit down to eat the cookie and drink the tea.",["positive",0.9780708]],["We had to be very fast, we did not even finished it and the people in the front rows were getting up and leaving and a new group came in.",["unknown",0.40051237]],["On the internet it is also often said that the tea ceremony is an opportunity for photographers, but it is not allowed to take pictures there.",["negative",0.29768237]],["I wanted to take a photo of our view (people‘s backs) for this review but I was immediately admonished and I do not even have that picture.",["unknown",0.35707763]],["On the other hand visitors in the front row used phones and cameras to take pictures right in front of geisha, they showed pictures to everyone and no one cares!",["unknown",0.4635682]],["Terrible, my worst japanese experience.",["unknown",0.5949806]],["Lose time and money!",["unknown",0.38832963]],["The performance itself is quite nice.",["positive",0.9240397]],["But last year we were at the Kamogawa Odori show at the Ponto-chō Kaburen-jō theater and although there was not so much geishas in the show, it was a bit longer and more varied.",["positive",0.9411461]],["Thus, in my view, the performances are essentially comparable but the tea ceremony at Ponto-chō Kaburen-jō was a chamber (small group) and quiet, so I strongly recommended visiting this theater and show instead of Miyako Odori.",["positive",0.89186627]],["Tickets are almost the same price (JPY 4,800 per one).",["positive",0.8615757]]],"reviewer_fake_points":-5}


{"reviewer_id":"F9803B03388DE3261114F547583254B8","reviewer_name":"Tiger05","review_text":"Only in April. We are not massive theatre goers but this performance blew us away. It is a fantastic world class cultural experience with a brilliant set, amazing costumes and music - 50 minutes is ideal for this. The English audio guide was fantastic and highly advisable. This added a fantastic extra dimension to a visit to Kyoto. We booked on-line a little late so had tickets at the back which were still fine. The website to book has English option but is a little challenging - but well worth the effort. You simply book on-line and get an email confirmation which is exchanged for tickets on the day of performance. The temporary location in 2017 at the Arts university is pretty easy to get to with Metro, connecting tram and nice 10 min walk through a quiet residential area. Recommend to book on-line as early as possible as we had only limited options about 2 weeks before our visit","review_rating":5.0,"sentiment_class":"positive","sentiment_result":0.8087451366666667,"sentiment_breakdown":[["Only in April.",["unknown",0.44191754]],["We are not massive theatre goers but this performance blew us away.",["unknown",0.60657626]],["It is a fantastic world class cultural experience with a brilliant set, amazing costumes and music - 50 minutes is ideal for this.",["positive",0.9849952]],["The English audio guide was fantastic and highly advisable.",["positive",0.9287938]],["This added a fantastic extra dimension to a visit to Kyoto.",["positive",0.9813912]],["We booked on-line a little late so had tickets at the back which were still fine.",["positive",0.92622423]],["The website to book has English option but is a little challenging - but well worth the effort.",["positive",0.9017612]],["You simply book on-line and get an email confirmation which is exchanged for tickets on the day of performance.",["unknown",0.5346406]],["The temporary location in 2017 at the Arts university is pretty easy to get to with Metro, connecting tram and nice 10 min walk through a quiet residential area.",["positive",0.9724062]]],"reviewer_fake_points":-30}


{"reviewer_id":"A63781D60D6FEAE67595CB1B6702A00A","reviewer_name":"CatherineBulg","review_text":"We’ve heard a lot about this outstanding performance and purchased tickets in advance (actually the first day they were put on sale, December 1) via Internet. The navigation and paying process were very fast, simple and clear. We chose tickets without tea ceremony and apparently it was a good decision. The historical theater building is closed for renovation works, so This year it took place at the theater hall of Kyoto University of Art and Design. Not right in the city center, but a very easy place to reach using public transport if you put a little effort in “breaking through” Kyoto’s transport system) So, we simply to the Keihan line (private railway, but looks more like a subway) from the city center till Demachiyanagi station and then changed to Eizan private railway to Chayama station (the third one on this line, 5-7 minutes by train!) From this station it took us 10-12 minutes to reach the University theater hall on foot. Much better than waste your time and money on taxi with drivers who sometimes don’t speak or understand English, right?! My advice: don’t rely on taxis, prepare your trip in details in advance, that will be much more fun and considerably more instructive!) \n\nThe theater hall surely lacks some historical prestige of the building situated in Gion quarter, but nevertheless it was comfortable, modern and had a great cafeteria to wait for the show to start observing locals in beautiful yukatas. I rented the audio guide to get some additional information on the performance or at least to understand what’s going on on the stage. And I didn’t regret it one bit since it was not overly “talkative” but interesting and well to the point! Moreover, it didn’t bother me at all during the performance. On the contrary, thanks to understanding the verses they were singing and getting a brief insight on the seasonal traditions of Kyoto, I had most breathtaking experience! The performance is not long (it lasted a bit more than an hour), but of a really high quality and with gorgeous scenery! Definitely worth to watch it at least once, though we would love to attend it one more time in the future! Thumbs up!
