Ochaya (tea houses) are exclusive locations in Kyoto where geisha and maiko entertain. These tours provide a once-in-a-lifetime ochaya experience! Sip a cup of green macha tea while chatting with a maiko, and take part in ozashiki asobi (traditional parlor games). A great option for visitors who don't wish to order a meal, meet a maiko in a more intimate setting. Make sure to bring your camera to take a picture with the elegant entertainers.
