Geishas are traditional Japanese entertainers trained as hostesses with skills in an array of Japanese disciplines, including dance, music and the tea ceremony. The history of the geisha dates back to the 18th century, and even today, the modern geisha undergoes an extensive and lengthy apprenticeship process, resides in a geisha house and learns Japanese instruments.
During your dinner, enjoy the privilege of having two of these specially trained hostesses for company.

With the help of your guide as interpreter, interact with the geishas to gain insight into their profession and Japan’s ancient culture throughout your meal.
This special occasion includes a wonderful home-cooked meal, made with fresh, locally sourced ingredients, such as sashimi and seasonal Japanese vegetables. Your cuisine is expertly paired with sake and beer (one each included).
Take photos with the geishas to remember this rare dining experience before your driver takes you back to your hotel.
