Miyako Odori (Miyako Odori festival) 

This dance is performed by the maiko and geiko of Gion Kobu. The first performance in 1872 was promoted as part of the Exhibition for the Promotion of Domestic Industry, as a measure to promote prosperity in Kyoto after the city's decline as a result of the capital having been moved to Tokyo in 1869. The infusion of new ideas into this annual event has made it very popular. It is now one of the main events in Kyoto.
