What a wonderful night. We went as a special birthday occasion. The staff were attentive and so helpful. The food was very good and plentiful. The games are so much fun. Would highly recommend as a must do when in Kyoto Rosanna

The chef unfortunately serves shark fin soup, which a lot of us are opposed to due to the way in which the commercial shark finning industry operates. The food was otherwise ok, not quite up to expected kaiseki standards. The show was actually excellent, with very personable and entertaining maiko performers. I know that at least two of our party would not have attended if we knew they were going to serve shark fin soup.

This is an all round great experience, informative, entertaining and educational. Great food and all you can drink, well worth booking if you are in Kyoto.

We took a girls trip and wanted to get a close up view of the maiko and geiko culture. This was a wonderful option. The venue is just around the corner from the Yasaka shrine. We were served tea while we waited to enter the dining room. The tables were set for 4. 2 people per side. My only negative was, we were seated with our backs to the performance. We had to completely turn around to watch, which made it difficult to eat (so many courses!) and watch. The food was fantastic. Such a large variety. Pic of the menu was attached. I dont eat much seafood, but I ate all kinds that night! The maiko performance started with a dance and then an interpreter explained the maiko culture in both japanese and english. Once they were finished explaining the culture and her kimono, they went table to table so that we all could ask questions and take some pictures. Then came the drinking games. The loser had to drink sake or beer, the winner received a small prize. I won! Everyone was laughing and having a great time. I think teens and adults would like this best.

Don't try to catch a glimpse of these ladies in the streets; go to this show! The show had 2 geikos (name of geishas in tokyo) and one maiko. You can see them up-close and more important, see their craft (playing music, dancing and singing). After that, there were 2 fun 'drinking' games (you can choose between beer & tea) and you can take pictures with them at the end. You can also talk to them and ask them questions. The food was also excellent and you can drink as much as you want.
