  • Wonderful show though very, very crowded.

  • Skip the tea ceremony but get the audio guide! Makes such a difference to your understanding as the guide (English) was richly detailed and beautifully narrated. It also starts while you are queuing, giving you something to do. Performance is flawless, kimonos are beautiful, musicians talented. Loved it. Re seating, I chose unreserved "2nd class" seats and arrived 55 minutes before to queue so was able to select a great seat in the gallery but be warned about showing up late. Busloads of tourists will result in you sitting st the back.

  • The show was amazing!! I really enjoyed dancing. Don't take tea ceremony. It's not a ceremony at all. We were given just a tea with desert. Nothing about preparation or anything you would expect from the tea ceremony.

  • Very nice geisha dance. If you try to book online only the first class tickets are available. But directly at the counter I could easily buy 2nd class tickets just 5 minutes before the show began.

  • Dancing is beautiful, but do not pay for the "Tea Ceremony", which is not a ceremony but a crowded, cattle-like procession of several hundred tourists, who are quickly sat down, given tea and a sweet in front of a Maiko and Geiko who only stare into space. Tea is pre-prepared and is served on cafeteria trays. No utensils nor cleaning cloth provided for the sweet, so you are forced to quickly eat with dirty hands before the next few hundred force you forward. This is followed by a long wait in a crowded and hot room without any instructions from staff who are more concerned with selling trinkets than the comfort of their guests. On the bright side, you keep the plate!
