As many people who have read the book Geisha, this sparked my curiosity. You get to experience the traditional dances, music, and participate in games . The hosts were very gracious.

This was very informative, interesting, and also fun! The geisha and her assistant were very nice and so polite. They answered any question people asked. They taught us what each dance movement meant and when the songs were typically sung and danced to. We learned about the history and significance of geishas. Had a free beer and some snacks. We also played some fun Geisha games. I would definitely recommend going!

We took our 4 children (ages 14, 12, 10, 8) along with a grandparent and we all had an excellent time! I can’t recommend this experience enough! It was so fun for all of us and we learned a lot in the process. We were laughing and interested the entire time! We played several fun games with the Geisha and enjoyed the “punishments” for those that lost (so funny!), learned how to use the fan and some of the movements, watched 3 dances spread out during the event and sang along to a part of it, wore kimonos and took pictures with her. We enjoyed the snacks and the information provided. It was very interactive! The Geisha and her English speaking assistant were so wonderful and so nice! It was one of our favorite things we did in Tokyo! It is a must do!

We read reviews before going and any suggestions added from months/years ago were incorporated! There was a great educational packet and information spoken to us from the assistant to explain to us as we went along in the event. There were quick transitions between activities. Well done and worth every penny!
