This was such a good experience. I wasn't sure what to expect, if it would be touristy or authentic - I was pleased to find it's completely authentic. The ladies were so nice and accommodating. I felt incredibly welcomed right away. It was definitely a high ending to our trip in Tokyo. I highly recommend this experience!

We thoroughly recommend this experience. The geisha performed and then involved us in a very active, fun and engaging way. Both the geisha and her assistant were delightful and teased the audience about punishment if they lost the games. There was a lovely photo opportunity to dress up as well as refreshments being provided. The instructions were very clear and it was super easy to find the venue. This experience will be a memorable part of our time in this beautiful country.
