It was such an amazing experience to explore Gion area and meet a real Maiko. Our guide, Kaori-san was knowledgeable, thoughtful, and professional. She explained unique customs and culture of Kyoto, and I enjoyed listening very much. Maiko was so adorable that I got excited to take her pictures. She wore a beautiful kimono and searved us Matcha green tea. The lady who made tea was a very friendly and nice person. She said she used to be a Geiko, and of course a Maiko. Her song and performance was wonderful. I want to join the tour again.
