キャンペーン価格で予約すると予約時間通りに行ったのに、4時間待ちにされました。外国人の団体が大勢待っていたので、正規料金で払ってくれる当日受付の彼らを優先したと思われます。本当に足元を見た商売にがっかりしました。 I had to wait for 4h even I reserved in advance. I guess it is because I reserved in campaign price. I found many foreign tourist that can afford to pay regular fee. They could cut in line I suppose. I've never experienced that disappointing service before.

We spent more than 30 minutes trying to find this establishment as the address the taxi driver dropped us off at (the corner of Matsubara and Higashioshi Dori) was incorrect!

My daughter and I visited Kyoto in March 2015. My daughter enjoyed her experience as a Geisha immensely. She was transformed into a beuatiful Geisha within 1 and half hours and made a memor;y she will never forget. The staff was professional and made the day wonderful.

Great experience. Very fast in moving people thru but we got enough time for photos and staff helpful. Good price compared to others. Best to book for early in day as was looking a little chaotic when we left at 11am

I had a memorable experience here when I went for the Maiko transformation. The good thing about the experience is that you get to know how it feels to be a geisha. It was quite embarrassing to have so many tourists following you or pointing at you. Later on that day I got to see a few 'real-deal' maiko at... More

This should actually be an activity rather than under shopping... The staff are all friendly, professional and fast at what they do to get so many people through the process. Great English.

I highly recommend this experience to all women and girls visiting Kyoto. The studio was really easy to get to by bus as it stops right outside. The whole process is very well planned and my experience ran like clockwork. It took about an hour and a half in total. First you change into a robe and remove all hairclips... More
