  • Though I was alone they didn’t cancel the show. Two dances were great to get the idea of what the art is. Then it was photo and questions time. Nice place, friendly staff and perfect timing. Thank you...  more »
  • This show is really designed for foreigners and tourists. The reception is not friendly and rejected our requests of changing seats despite there are plenty of seats available. There was only one maik...  more »

  • I found it a bit expensive for a performance of 3 songs and a tea ceremony (without any explanations). We've payed around 55 euros by person for an afternoon performance. And we were around 20-25 persons in the theater. I would prefer to have more information about the tea ceremony before and during the performance. But it was nice to see Maiko in her beautiful kimono dancing for us.
  • I was super excited to see a maiko and her dance. Booked tickets online in advance. Tickets were pricy but I didn’t mind since this was one of the items (seen a Maiko) on my bucket list. It’s a small room. Very neat and tidy. Warmly welcomed by the organiser. There were only 15 people including us so not crowded. Tea ceremony by Maiko and her dance afterwards was mesmerising. Maiko was so glamorous..Got to talk with the Maiko through the translator. All went according to the plan and well organised. However I found the whole thing is a bit commercialised.(to be expected.. still) The room interior and set up is too contemporary doesn’t suit the concept of Maiko and Japanese tea ceremony. Next day while walking through back streets of Gion we saw Maiko and Geishas coming out of Ochayas and rushing through narrow back streets . I found those encounters are more authentic. But seen real Maikos and Geishas in Gion are so rare and that’s why we book this session so we could see a one.
