Our family very much enjoyed the introduction to Geisha culture. Great for family or individual travelers who want a unique experience. Very interactive!
A must do experience. A small operation really trying to enterain and share the Geisha experience A little hard to find but well worth the effort.
Excellent. I always wanted to meet a geisha so this was a great experience. The interaction was great. she encouraged all of us to participate and we had a lot of fun. A very good hostess. Learnt a lot about the geisha life. amazing.
It was different and good to see a full form geisha. Would recommend if you want to experience Japan culture.
Activity was 1.5 hours long. During the 1.5 hours the Geisha performed 3 songs with a recorded background no live music playing, for a total of less than 10 minutes. The remaining 1 hour and 20 minutes were games performed by guests. Not a good usage of time, we don't go to a geisha activity to see turists performing games.
Our Geisha hostess Nami was most gracious and entertaining with her music performances as well as teaching the class to play games from the olden days. It was an afternoon well spent and made the trip to Tokyo all that more awesome!
Definitely a culturally enriching experience and the best part of my visit to Tokyo. The Geisha and her assistant were incredibly welcoming and friendly, relating customs and traditions that have being in Japan for centuries. There were many small dance and sing shows as well as games that the Geisha's of old use to perform for their guests. I would recommend the experience to anyone traveling to Japan, it will really make a difference in your perception of Japanese culture.
