The Art of Geisha

Kanazawa geiko demonstrate their skills at a private “ochaya” (teahouse).

Kyoto isn’t the only city in Japan where visitors can experience authentic geisha culture. Kanazawa boasts three active geiko districts and many thriving ochaya. Visits must be arranged through a complex insider network, something AOT is happy to handle. Once inside, guests have the opportunity to both enjoy the geikos’ spirited entertainment and converse via an interpreter. And don’t forget the drinking games! An evening with geiko is one visitors won’t soon forget.
