I had a fantastic time at Gion Hatanaka's maiko performance. Visitor's not only get to see traditional geisha dances performed to accompaniment by the shamisen, but also speak to the geisha and ask them questions. My Japanese can use a lot of work, but they...More

We wondered if this would be a tourist trap and while yes it is clearly something that tourists do, it is a really fantastic experience. There was something like 25-30 guests when we went on tables of 4 and the food and rink kept coming!...More

My friends and I recently return from a whirlwind, two week tour of Japan. The planning was left up to me, and so we ended up doing what I wanted a lot of the time. Good deal for me, but I think my travel companions...More
