Explore the geisha town, Kagurazaka, and shop for Japanese accessories
A geisha is a female traditional entertainer who dances and performs for her customers. The Geisha Culture flourished in the Edo era (1603-1868) and was a symbol of Japanese female beauty and elegance. Although there are not as many geishas anymore, there are still women who find success in this business.
Kagurazaka is one of the small towns where the geisha business still survives. Have some tea with traditional Japanese confectionery and shop for accessories in the cobbled streets that will make you feel as if you were in the historic city of Kyoto. This tour will also take you to shrines and temples where you might be lucky enough to see some local geishas offering prayers.
