What is a Geisha?
A geisha is an entertainer highly skilled in traditional Japanese arts. These skills include traditional Japanese dance, musical instruments, and parlor games called ozashiki.

Geisha vs. Geiko
While most English speakers are familiar to the term "geisha," this word applies to entertainers based in Tokyo. In Kyoto, where geisha culture is most prominent, the term used is "geiko."

What is a Maiko?
A maiko is a geisha in training, often distinguished by colorful kimono and elaborate hair accessories she wears. An aspiring maiko can only debut after years of extensive training. A maiko also typically spends five or so years before graduating to become a geiko.

Since the 1800s, geisha and maiko have been a beautiful sight throughout Kyoto with their signature white make-up and elaborate kimonos. Trained in various Japanese arts, being entertained by a geisha or a maiko (apprentice) is truly unforgettable. Normally they will not receive new customers without a recommendation from a regular client. Relax as you enjoy your meal and watch a graceful dance and lyrical music performance, maybe even play traditional games with a geisha or maiko! Your start time between 11:30 and 13:30 will be confirmed after booking.

We had so much fun. All of us were very happy with the experience. We became big fans of Tomitsuyu! If we have a chance, we'd like to do this again.
