Gracieux et enchantant

Reviewed by: Kelly, 2019/12/30

La performance est de deux chansons, c'est magnifique. Ensuite nous avons beaucoup de temps pour poser toutes les questions à la Maiko.

Je recommande cette activité à tout ceux qui veulent en savoir plus sur les Maiko et Geiko

Kotsuru était gentille et magnifique. Le staff parle anglais et nous avons été bien accueilli dans cette activité intime

Geisha performance - probably rating is better than good, but overall not quite excellent - although it was excellent value for money

Reviewed by: Jonathan, 2019/06/10

We were treated to a dance routine, and had ample time to discuss the geisha / maiko life. The location is not too difficult to find (given the general problems with Japanese addresses), although it is a little too formal (something which should be considered). Do not be put off by the need to buy at least one drink - they were perfectly reasonably priced.

Given the cost of this event (compared to other similar productions), it exceeded our expectations - although that was perhaps helped by the fact that we were few in number.

However, we we were given exactly what we were told - some dancing, the chance for photographs and plenty of time to talk to maiko and begin to understand the geisha life.

I really liked watching how Maiko San was dancing. Also, she kindly answered all questions we made. The performance itself consisted of two dances, a game with Maiko San and answering questions about life of Maikos. The only thing I wished that the translation was more accurate. The translator was not always able to translate the questions and answers. Overall, the experience was very interesting and if I had chance, I would go again.

A great "sampler" of Kyoto Maiko culture

Reviewed by: Angie, 2018/12/05

This experience is a great "sampler" or introduction to Kyoto's Maiko history and culture. There was a short tea ceremony (some lovely Japanese ladies who were also attending were great for explaining the proper etiquette, but that's definitely not required). They served a small plate of sweets with the tea, and I must say the tea was the most perfect temperature - hot but not too hot to drink! The maiko also did 3 dances to recorded music which were so graceful and precise! Finally, there was a time to speak to the maiko directly and ask questions. If you're thirsty, they do sell drinks. It's a small facility that some taxi drivers may not be familiar with, so be prepared with an address! Overall, it's a lovely introduction to the culture that's worth the time to visit!
