Maiko dress up

One of the places in Kyoto where you can dress up like a maiko (apprentice geisha) and take a tour. While foreigners do usually look good in kimono and yukata, even Japanese women look awkward dressed up as maiko, and gaijin are especially gawky. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do it just for kicks, though, if you don’t mind a few snickers.
To get to this shop, go south on Kawabata street from Shijo, turn left at the first bridge (Donguri street), then right at the first corner and go down the street of teahouses (Miyagawacho). It’s on your left. TEL 075-551-1661. I have a brochure with their rates here somewhere. I’ll add that data later.
