Ms. Fukukana was amazing, we really enjoyed watching her maiko performance. We learnt a lot about the culture, and Japanese traditions. Everyone was very welcoming, and the whole show was professional. We recommend going to see this while you're in Kyoto!

We watched the Maiko slow with Fukuya at Hotel Granbell and we were very impressed with her poise and grace. It was lovely to be introduced to such a special Japanese culture and to learn about Geishas.
