Know More about this tourBegin your private experience with pickup at your Kyoto hotel by air-conditioned taxi around 6:30pm. Each taxi seats four travelers, and more than one will be taken if necessary. At 7pm, arrive at the ochaya, a traditional-style Japanese restaurant, for dinner. Enjoy an authentic Japanese-style kaiseki, multi-dish dinner with top-quality sake as you are entertained by geisha artists in the most authentic manner.
With your guide and interpreter, spend 3 hours in an authentic Japanese setting. The Maiko artist will casually chat with you, serve drinks, and play easy games, or show you some of her dancing abilities. Please note that the Maiko does not speak English fluently. Depending on the restaurant, you may be in a private room or in a room with other guests.
Depending on the season, you may also visit a temple to see the night illuminations or a Japanese garden that is not usually open to public. Your guide will inform you about the seasonal activities after you book.
End your activity with drop-off back at your hotel at around 10:30pm.
