We have arranged a very special experience in a historic, remodeled tea house in Gion where you will be able to spend an evening with an authentic maiko. This is a truly rare opportunity to not only see a maiko dance in person, but to play traditional ozashiki games, and take photos together. Japanese dancing A maiko will perform a charming and elegant dance for you while dressed in an exquisite kimono. These dances can only be performed by those who have trained diligently to perfect this traditional art. Ozashiki Asobi You will also be able to try your hand hat "ozashiki asobi". Ozashiki asobi are games that have been enjoyed in Japan since the days of old. There are penalties for losing against the maiko, so do your best. At our experience, we will play a rhythmical game set to music called Konpira Funefune. Michelin star rated delightful bento boxes These delightful bento boxes are filled with traditional Kyoto delicacies prepared by a Michelin star rated restaurant. Photographs You will also be able to freely take photographs with the maiko. Of course, photographs and video are also allowed anytime during the dance and game portions of the afternoon as well The minimum number of participants is 4 in one session. Please kindly note the possibility of cancellation if the participants is less than 4 before 48 hours the event. In that case, we will give you full refund.
I was born in Kobe, and from elementary school grew up in Kyoto, where I have been living for almost 40 years now. To be honest, in my twenties I was not so interested in history or the traditional arts. However, after hitting my thirties, I started really noticing the appeal that Kyoto has, and luckily my fate became intertwined with Kyoto’s Kagai (Entertainment District). My passion toward starting this experience is to introduce Kyoto’s unique attractiveness to visitors and to promote Kyoto’s Kagai (‘Flower Town’Entertainment District), while paying the greatest respect to the traditional culture of the district’s strict, referral-based admittance policy, and with the corporation of those who understand and try to preserve its legacy.
