About the tour

Your dream will come true here! Kyoto is famed for its shrines and temples, which are full of countless unique stories that will astonish you, making you fall in love with and connect yourself to their ancient history. I am deeply fascinated by the living traditions called Geisha or Geiko hidden behind the sliding doors of Kagai(花街). The mysterious world of Geisha can seem exclusive and challenging to discover, so on this virtual tour we will talk with Maiko, Geisha apprentice and I will reveal the entertainers who adhere to this traditional lifestyle, their history, rituals, and nuances of the art-form. 0-10min Intro of Geisha culture(History and Kimono) 10-20min Maiko dancing 20-30min Question time

The tour was a little different. More of an interview and a brief performance. It was interesting and created a desire to learn more.

Ken is a lovely tour guide. He gave a thorough explanation if the meaning of a guisher girl. He presented a lovely guisher girl who presented herself in full attire of a guisher girl and explained the meaning of the attire. She also gave a beautiful dance. I enjoyed. Thanks.
