It´s not pricey if you consider that seeing a maiko is a unique experience. The dinner is good and also the drinks

I really didn't know what to expect when I booked the Kyoto Cuisine & Maiko Evening directly with Satomi Hatanaka, the charming owner of Gion Hatanaka for myself, my husband and our 16 & 11 year old daughters. Truthfully, I thought we'd just be enjoying...More

Dinner and performance by Maiko and Geiko. You have an opportunity to meet and speak with them after dinner you play drinking games and take photos with them. This is a must do in Kyoto.

After few days in Japan, you would expect something more at that price... Instead, the food was nothing extraordinary. The geisha show was interesting during the first part (20 min max) - then they started playing games - but in my opinion it doesn't justify...More
