Enjoy a Japanese banquet dinner with traditional Japanese dancing. ( eight course, beverages included)
Maiko are apprentice geiko (similar to geisha) in Kyoto, western Japan.
Traditionally, Maiko entertain guests during feasts by performing songs, dances, and playing the shamisen or the koto (traditional Japanese instruments)
Maiko are usually aged 15 to 20 years old and become geiko after learning how to dance the traditional kyomai dances, play the shamisen, and learning the local Kyoto dialect.
Japan Holidays is able to organise this unique Kyoto experience – held each week on Tuesday and Thursday, from 6PM to 8PM.
During the dinner, the master of ceremonies will carry out the proceedings in both English and Japanese, which includes a maiko dance performance and ozashiki-asobi (games played with geisha) – as well as a time to chat with the maiko themselves. The taking of photographs is permitted – including video – with time for commemorative photographs at the end.
