|Welcome to my page
I am an English guide
in charge of Gion.
|Below is the sightseeing spot I provide the guiding service.|
Maiko-san are professional artists, yet their charm is in their youth and immaturity. Their appearance emphasizes their youth. For example, they tuck their sleeves in at the shoulder like a child. When they turn 20 and are acknowledged to be skillful in art and service, they become Geiko-san. They are usually mature enough to listen and talk to the guest and required a higher level of artistry.
Then the only way to see Maiko-san is to go to the Gion-area and wish for good luck. Gion is where Maiko-san and Geiko-san live at Ochaya (teahouses) , you may come across them moving from one banquet to another by chance. But Be careful not to mistake tourists making up themselves as a Maiko-san for the real thing !
If you want to meet Maiko-san,Geiko-san privately, or you want a more authentic experience, why don’t you try Ochaya-asobi, visiting a real teahouse ? For a long time, teahouses didn’t accept guests without references from other clients because of security and to maintain their service level, which means it was very hard to get in for a foreign guest. But they have come to open their door to guests recently. We will make arrangements for Ochaya with which they have contact. Your dream come true !
