Photoshoot with a Geisha - Evening

Rendezvous with the guide at Tofukuji station entrance gate and meet with a real-life Geisha. Watch and learn about the skill and art behind applying Geisha makeup. Converse with her and get to know about the art and life of Geisha in a private setting.

Then, accompany the guide to the two chosen locations to proceed with an exclusive photoshoot; first in a magnificent and secluded spot in Kyoto’s Tofukuji temple compound. After a short break, proceed to the backstreets of Gion, Kyoto’s most famous entertainment and Geisha district with the Geisha in her full splendour, complete with makeup and kimono.
