    The place of the maiko experience is only 1-minute walk away from the South Romon gate of the Yasaka Shrine. It used to be a real teahouse (place where geiko entertain their guests) in the Gion district established in Taisho Era (1912-1926). The main sightseeing spots are within a 10-minute walk from the shop.When you come to the shop you will be immediately turned into a maiko. After putting on special underwear for a kimono, Japanese makeup will follow. And last you can change into your favorite gorgeous kimono.You can then select a Japanese hair ornament that matches your style.The photoshoot is in a tatami room in a Japanese house.
