Què farem?

Kyoto is famed for its shrines and temples, which are full of countless unique stories that will astonish you, making you fall in love with and connect yourself to their ancient history. I am deeply fascinated by the living traditions called Geisha or Geiko hidden behind the sliding doors of Kagai(花街). The mysterious world of Geisha can seem exclusive and challenging to discover, so on my experience we will take tea break, talking with Maiko, Geisha apprentice and I will reveal the entertainers who adhere to this traditional lifestyle, their history, rituals, and nuances of the art-form.

・Meet up at 宮川町歌舞練場/Miyagawacho Kaburenjo and walk to the 150 years-old Kyo-Machiya Cafe. I chartered the entire cafe for the experience. I would like you not only seeing Geisha but also relaxing in the cozy Kyoto townhouse.
・At the beginning part we will discuss the living traditions, their lifestyle and history.
・I will announce "Ladies and gentle men..." and she, Maiko will show up. First we will watch her dancing.
・Then we talk with and ask her, taking a cup of tea together.
・Tour will end all of sudden because she will have the next performance, will be in a hurry. We will see her off, saying "Sayonara".

Very knowledgeable about the Geiko community, and spoke very good English, it was very easy to understand him. Having the opportunity to sit down and speak with a Maiko-san, and being able to see her dance up close was wonderful!! The experience included a drink of your choice from the provided menu, I chose hot chocolate and it was fantastic! All in all, an exceptional, one of a kind experience!!!!

Amazing experience that everyone should have. Being up close to a Maiko and asking questions which Ken translated was certainly the highlight of my trip. Would recommend to everyone!

I had one of the best experience while i was in Japan when participating in this experience. The Maiko really participated when we asked many questions from her experience and her personal life. You can take photos and videos as much as you can during the activity and i was quite lucky that day because there were only 3 of us at the time. For those who likes traditional culture of Japan, i highly recommend you this experience that you cannot forget.

The tour that my daughter, her friend and I took was a highlight of my time in Japan. It really brought Kyoto culture to life and made us feel like we had a special peek into the world of Geikos. I highly recommend it!
