This is a special insight into the activities that happen only behind closed doors in an Ochaya with customers who pay millions of yen to be entertained by Geishas. We met Nami-san and her English speaking assistant in their studio in Omori area. They proceeded to show us the special dances and games they would use in entertaining guests. Everything - including booklets and the dances - were explained in English for foreigners. If you’re curious about the Geisha art & culture they embody, this visit is a must. This is a dying trade and no more than 1000 Geishas exist in all Japan. The studio is small and so book early. Wear socks as the studio has tatami flooring but perfectly air conditioned for the summer months. Allow yourself a little more time to find the Ochaya. Google map worked perfectly for us.
We had to book a transfer because we were arriving at 2am and there were no trains or buses available. It is much more expensive, but there were no other options. However, everything went very smoothly. Our driver was there waiting for us with our names on a sign, he spoke English, he was friendly, the car was modern and clean, and he drove us to the door of our accommodation (which was excellent at that time of morning!)
Transfer service was as promised. Schedule was followed, meeting place was right were it was indicated. Was a bit worried since I couldn’t add transport provider to the Line app just in case something went wrong. But thankfully it was smooth sailing all the way.
Driver was patient and courteous! Vehicle was clean! Driver knew exactly where to go. I will enroll in your service again and recommend it to all my family and friends! This is the only way to go from the airport to the hotel and back! Thank you! Franklin Lau
The driver was already waiting for us when we arrived and we had a pleasant ride from the airport to the hotel.
