When the sun sets, make your own way to Gion Hatanaka, a cultural center located in Kyoto’s renowned geisha district. On arrival, greet your courteous host and take a seat at your table in the elegant banquet room. Admire the elegance that exudes from sophisticated geishas as they perform traditional music and dances.
Listen as your host offers insight into the cultural significance of the geisha’s performance them commence your intimate dining experience; tantalize your taste buds with local delicacies prepared by an expertly trained chef and experience the rich flavor of sashimi and lightly steamed seasonal ingredients. Season your meal with sauces characteristic of Japanese cuisine, sprinkling fish stock, soy sauce or sweet sake over your meal.
Converse with the maiko and capture fabulous photographs of their exquisite attire while sipping unlimited alcoholic beverages and soft drinks from the bar. When your 2-hour evening comes to an end, depart from the cultural center and make your own way back to your hotel.
