Great experience!

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

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!
