Tea with a Geisha

It is hard to imagine a more traditional Japanese experience than attending a tea house and being entertained by a geisha (known as geiko in Kyoto). We have strong ties with a highly regarded traditional teahouse in the heart of the geiko area of Gion in Kyoto and can arrange a 45 minute private visit where you will be entertained by a geiko or a maiko (apprentice). They will serve you a cup of tea and some Japanese snacks and perform a highly skilful traditional dance, after which you will be able to ask them questions about their life and take some photos with them. Be aware that a visit to such a special tea house is always subject to availability and we may not be able to confirm it for you until nearer to your trip.
