It was worth it. Very not crowded and it was a great experience. Comes with matcha made by the maiko. I had a great time. Be sure to stay to ask questions! Staff are extremely nice and understanding.

This is not a typical theatre you come, watch and leave. This theatre is all about experiences. I believe every tourist should start their Kyoto visit from here. Being an apprentice of Geisha as Maiko requires a solid dedication, discipline, patience and a lot of...More

A great show and opportunity to meet a real Geisha. The staff was very friendly and open for a conversation. Beside a wunderful tea ceremony, you get a traditional geisha dance and picture with her. You also get the chance to talk with her.

A very pleasant thing to do learning about Maiko (trainee Geiko - the name for geisha in Kyoto). Experience a simple tea ceremony, watch her perform a dance and see the lovely Maiko up close. You can take a photo with her and ask her...More

(大昔の)京都の大学時代に何度か観に行った「をどり」の他には、本物の芸舞妓さんにお目にかかる機会はありませんでしたが、こんなに舞妓さんを間近に拝見でき、舞妓さんに点てて頂いたお茶を頂き、お話まで出来るなんてまるで夢のようなひと時でした。ふく英さんはと~ってもお綺麗で、立礼のお点前の時、彼女の銀のかんざしが照明に当たってきらきら輝いているのを見ながら「今まで生きていて本当によかったわぁ」と思いました。「祇園小唄」の舞をかぶりつきで(笑)拝見できたのもよかったです。四番とも振付がそれぞれ違い、また祇園以外の方(こちらは宮川町です)も舞われるとは知りませんでした。他のスタッフの方々もとても丁寧かつフレンドリーでした。 私のような一般人にとっては、どなたかの御紹介でお茶屋さんに上がって舞妓さんにお目にかかるというのは不可能ですし、このような劇場を作って下さり本当に感謝しております。 As everyone says, this is superb, beyond descriptions! The beauty of Maiko (Fukuhana-san) was otherworldly, she was stunning. She did tea ceremony right in front of me, and the tea she had made was served to me...is this real? Am I allowed?? Her...More
