moreOwner description: Welcome to Maikoya, a 6-floor building that used to be a geisha house (okiya) until the mid 1980s. Osaka is the birthplace of tea ceremony and we have the best selection of kimonos in addition to antique calligraphy tools and historical artifacts on the display. We offer unique experiences where visitors can engage in Japanese pastimes. Daily workshops provide a fun introduction to the culture such as the traditional tea ceremony, kimono wearing, sushi experience, Japanese calligraphy, furoshiki, origami, and much more. All of these classes are taught by professionals in their field and all at one convenient location of Maikoya Osaka. Each workshop is in English and the masters are waiting to show you the meaning, symbolism and subtle aesthetics involved in every aspect of Japanese culture. Once you step into Maikoya, you travel back in time and perform cultural activities in exactly the same way the locals performed 400 years ago in an exactly the same ambiance.
