Maiko are famous characters, right up there with Samurai and Ninja.
With faces painted white like snow and breathtakingly beautiful kimonos, they were distinctive, even within Japanese culture.
This time, we would like to introduce 4 shops where you can experience what it’s like to become a Maiko.
You too can be a Japanese beauty!
We recommend strolling through town as a Maiko and taking some outdoor photographs.
Many props are available to create the elegant atmosphere of a Maiko.
All the make-up and powder used is authentically Japanese.
All photos are taken by professional photographers and it should be noted that the Geisha experience is also available!
Besides the Maiko experience, which is very popular with ladies, there are also the “child Maiko” and “male kimono” experiences, which the whole family can enjoy!
There is a new wooden tea ceremony room, which was just completed in 2014, where it is also possible to take pictures.
This elegant atmosphere, combined with the kimono and accessories, bring out a very realistic Maiko experience!
With the biggest photography space in Kyoto, you can enjoy taking pictures in the tatami rooms and teahouses where the Maiko used to practice their arts.
Taking pictures while strolling through town is also possible. Either way, you will have a memorable Maiko experience!
