Things to do 14 Geisha Experience in Kyoto

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

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!

    Book an exclusive private dinner with a maiko in Kyoto

    Book an exclusive private dinner with a maiko in Kyoto Our guide picked us up at our accommadation and took us first for dinner in Gion. Whilst my son struggled with some of the dishes, I enjoyed everything put in front of me (and helped him with his) whilst we talked to our guide about life in Japan. After dinner, we went to the teahouse to meet the Maiko, it was an amazing experience and the favourite part of our entire trip. We felt very privileged to have met these wonderful ladies and to see them showcase some of their art (dance/music). They taught us a traditional Japanese game and answered our many questions. Afterwards, our guide dropped us back to where we were staying. It is a highlight of my many trips globally and will be remembered.

    Book an exclusive private dinner with a maiko in Kyoto

    Book an exclusive private dinner with a maiko in Kyoto To celebrate my fiance's birthday, I wanted something very exceptional. So I booked there because it is very exclusive!
    My expectation was very high and I was not disappointed.
    We really enjoyed the cultural exchange with the maikos, we learned a lot about them. Thanks to our guide to translate and respect our conversation with them.
    We also appreciate the visit of "Okaasan" who served us the most tasteful sake we ever drinked! We saw a dance and listened shamisen, we also played some funny games with them. We laughed a lot. We highly recommand this experience and also we wanted to say thank you to everybody and mostly to M. Sawada for opening this experience to people from other countries.
