Japanese beer garden & maiko experience

Japanese beer garden & maiko experience

Meet a maiko over dinner in one of Kyoto's best rooftop beer gardens.

Kyoto's many rooftop beer gardens are a great way to enjoy the summer heat, especially at our favourite garden which is visited every summer evening by a maiko (apprentice geisha).

InsideJapan can make table reservations here for a set menu dinner and drinks, an enjoyable and affordable way to meet a real maiko. The maiko entertains diners for around two hours including performing two kyomai dances. She'll also make a round of the tables so you can greet the maiko in your best Japanese and have your photo taken with her.
