Feedback from our guests

It exceeded my expectations, I was part of experience in Kyoto and this one surpassed my expectations. It was a personal, educational and very warm and honest! Thank you! - Lithuania

Enjoyed, the Geisha were very friendly. - Australia

It was a bit crowded and was hard to see around so many people in the small rooms. - USA

I loved the event, the translator was a wonderful host and translated everything well. The Geikos were very friendly and I'm greatful for the rare opportunity to visit a real tea house and be able to ask questions to the Geikos and see their performances up close. - Germany
