Great entertainment
Nov 2019 • Couples
This informative and entertaining is a good way to learn more about geishas and their role in Japan. Both by educating speeches of lady Baba and demonstrations of her geisha’s you get to understand it way better, and if you’re lucky or ballsy you can even join in. Go & enjoy!

Unexpectedly fun and funny show
Oct 2019 • Solo
Lady Baba stole the show. When she was introduced and walked into the room, the audience held their breath. She truly captivated the audience w her charisma and humor. The short presentations of her geisha were interesting but I think Lady Baba is the main attraction. Listening to the shamisen and taiko can be boring if it’s done for too long so the length of each performance was good for me. Wish the Lady would take Q & A as I had more questions about geisha culture. Overall, the best part of my trip in Kanazawa. Lady Baba is my new spirit animal ❤️

Learning and fun
Oct 2019 • Friends
This show has it all. You experience being with a Geisha enjoying their singing, playing and dance whilst learning about their way of life. Watching the games played during the evenings was fun.
Learning about the tea house and how they work was fascinating. A great night well worth the money.

When booking an event like this, tailored to tourists, one is always concerned that it might be too "touristy", but Lady Baba strikes a perfect balance between authenticity and accessibility. The event is both entertaining and informative, as well as great fun, and charming. The performances of the geishas, especially the singing and the dancing are transfixing. Highly recommended.

A fun cultural experience you won't soon forget!
Mar 2019 • Couples
I have read other reviews that describe the show as cheap, uninteresting and a waste of time, but these people must have seen some other show, because the one I saw was none of these things. Yes, it was clearly practiced. Yes, it seemed like they had done this many times before. Yes, there was a lot of talking. But this is to be expected – these are geisha, this is what they do. They are performers and entertainers as a profession. If they didn’t practice and do things over and over, they wouldn’t be any good (hence the bevy of Maiko around).

For the sake of transparency, let me say that I have been studying geisha off and on for almost 3 decades – or at least as much as I could find out short of attending an actual performance, such as the one Lady Baba puts on. I know quite a bit about their world, but even I learned many interesting and fun things during the performance that I never knew.

Those that are interested in this aspect of Japanese history and are looking to be brought, ever so slightly, into the world of the authentic geisha, then you really must attend one of these performances and get the cultural experience of a lifetime. There is no way for me to over-emphasize this. If you want to see the real thing, in a comfortable, relaxed and even humorous environment, then please make the time, get a ticket, sit in the front row, participate when you can (the drinking game is fun!) and learn.

If you attend with no pre-conceptions or expectations and allow them to gently guide you through the performance (as only professional geisha can) then you will come away with a greater appreciation for their history and the milieu in which they exist today.

I was recommended to this show by a friend, and in turn I recommend it to you. I am a harsh critic and suffer no fools, and I happily give this event 5 full stars!

Elegance and enchanting
Sep 2018 • Couples
We saw a poster while walking on the street of Kanazawa, and we decided to give it a try. The michaya itself is a historical building with all kinds of charm. The host Lady Baba spoke perfect English and explained the details of geisha life, business and traditions. And the performance was simply breathtakingly elegant and authentic. We loved every second while being there. Don’t miss the chance to participate in such event! Highly recommended!

The best performance I've ever seen in my life
Mar 2019 • Couples
Since I was 7 years old, I'm in love with Japan. So, 23 years later, my dream came true.
I saw through website: 'Japonismo' this event and I'm only can say that it's 100% recomendable if you want to know about the world of the authentic geishas of Japan.

My husband doesn't understand English, but Lady Baba and the presenter of performance spoke English very well and he understood all and he could enjoyed too.
When a geisha started to dance I was started to cry of happiness. She dance very good and the another geisha sings and plays shamisen excellent.
Lady Baba is very nice and funny.
Lady Baba and her gesihas played with the public and it was very funny: you can play taiko with them, play to drink sake...

If I have the oportunity to go again to Japan, I'll go again to this performance.
Best wishes from Spain.
