Things to do 27 Geisha Experience in Japan

Looking for Geisha Experience in Japan? Discover and book a unique experience to create an unforgettable stay in Japan!

Geisha and their apprentices called maiko are professional entertainers well-trained in various forms of art such as dancing, playing traditional Japanese music instruments and communicating with customers of tea houses. Their main role is to entertain the guests and create a relaxing elegant atmosphere. Nowadays the culture of geisha has become easily accessible to foreign travelers through many tea houses open for the general public in Kyoto, Tokyo and Kanazawa. We offer plenty of activities in which you can enjoy a top-quality dinner accompanied by one or more geisha performers in a traditional tatami mat tea room. Of course, you can also experience the geisha culture yourself by transforming into an authentic maiko with one of our makeover activities! Stroll the little streets of Kyoto or Asakusa dressed up as a gorgeous geisha and immerse yourself in the classical old atmosphere of the town!

    Dinner with a Top Level Geisha Performance in Kagurazaka

    Dinner with a Top Level Geisha Performance in Kagurazaka As someone who has always had a fascination with geisha from a young age, this experience was so incredible! We took at taxi to the restaurant, which was convenient as the restaurant may be a little difficult to find on foot. Once we arrived, the restaurant staff were very accommodating and helpful. I had dietary requirements which they catered to with no problems. The absolute highlight of the night were our two geisha, Kotochiyo and Momoki, who were so kind, friendly and entertaining! Both were able to communicate with us in English and Japanese, and we had such a fun night! There were some dances, a shamisen performance and some drinking games too. Highly recommend this experience, and I most definitely wish to do this again when I return to Japan!

    Japanese Tea Ceremony with Geisha Dance Performance, Tokyo

    Japanese Tea Ceremony with Geisha Dance Performance, Tokyo My daughter and I were visiting Tokyo and wanted a truly traditional Japanese experience that didn't make us feel like "tourists". If anyone out there is wanting a similar experience, look no further! You have to work this in to your schedule somehow! Our geisha spoke English, but her demeanor was what we expected of a true geisha. It was perfect combination for us because we really were curious about the ceremony and the traditions and she was able to explain everything fully to us, while still maintaining her presence as a a geisha (btw, she was a registered geisha). Our Tea Master personalized our ceremony especially for us (including a tea which was in line with our taste). Can't say enough good things about this tour!
