キャンペーン価格で予約すると予約時間通りに行ったのに、4時間待ちにされました。外国人の団体が大勢待っていたので、正規料金で払ってくれる当日受付の彼らを優先したと思われます。本当に足元を見た商売にがっかりしました。 I had to wait for 4h even I reserved in advance.

Great experience. Very fast in moving people thru but we got enough time for photos and staff helpful. Good price compared to others. Best to book for early in day as was looking a little chaotic when we left at 11am

I had a memorable experience here when I went for the Maiko transformation. The good thing about the experience is that you get to know how it feels to be a geisha. It was quite embarrassing to have so many tourists following you or pointing...More

I highly recommend this experience to all women and girls visiting Kyoto. The studio was really easy to get to by bus as it stops right outside. The whole process is very well planned and my experience ran like clockwork. It took about an hour...More
