A really fun opportunity to take in some Japanese culture, play dress up and get some great photos. This experience lets you see what it takes for a Geisha or apprentice Maiko to prepare for their work with a photographer on hand to capture it.
Today, you will make your way to a small shop and studio in central Kyoto using the public transport network. On arrival, you will get to choose to dress as either a Geisha or the more colourful Maiko apprentices before you have makeup applied and are dressed in a beautiful kimono to complete the makeover. The shop has its own photographer on hand to capture the moment and you will be able to spend an hour walking the streets and striking a pose before it’s time to clean up and make your way back to your hotel with six printed photos and a CD containing many more snaps.
