Private audience with a maiko

InsideJapan are proud to offer an exclusive, private meeting with a Kyoto maiko.

Many Kyotoites spend their whole lives in Kyoto City, but never have the opportunity to meet a geisha, as this is an elusive, expensive experience usually reserved for visiting dignitaries or elite business men. However thanks to our links with a Gion tea house, InsideJapan are delighted to offer an exclusive maiko (apprentice geisha) experience.

Over afternoon tea served in a tatami-mat room, the maiko will entertain you with dances and a few traditional games. With a translator on hand to help this experience grants you a unique opportunity to gain a deep understanding of the geisha world.
