This afternoon, join a guide to find out more about this mysterious world. Together, meet a maiko, an apprentice geisha, and have tea with her at a local tea house in Gion.
The Japanese tea ceremony is a very structured ritual where all gestures, movements and even the colours of pottery and sweets have a precise meaning and function, and very little is left to chance.
Explanations of the meanings behind this ancient ritual will be given as the maiko leads the tea ceremony.The surprisingly bitter tea will be accompanied by traditional Japanese sweets, creating a harmonious blend of flavours
Savour the tea and sweets while enjoying the maiko’s traditional dance performance.
There will also be some time for an explanation about the history of geisha and maiko, and about their lives in present day Kyoto.
After this lovely experience, keep exploring the magnificent city of Kyoto or return to the hotel for some rest and relaxation.
