Introducing Maiko Theater

The video “Things to Do Maiko Theater” was uploaded by “Discover Kyoto.” It introduces Maiko Theater, which is attracting attention as a new sightseeing spot in Kyoto.

The Maiko Theater is a small theater based on the concept of "meeting maiko" and is located in the suburbs of Miyagawacho, one of the Five Hanamachi of Kyoto.
If you want to experience Kyoto’s traditional Japanese performing art culture, you should visit Maiko Theater, which opened in 2016.

Things to Do at Maiko Theater

Many tourists are attracted to maiko and geisha but visiting Hanamachi areas in Kyoto is a bit challenging.
That being said, if you visit the Maiko Theater, which is introduced in the video, you'll still be able to experience everything, such as watching maiko dance, tea-serving, talking with maiko and taking photos with maiko.

There are several plans to choose from.
Popular plans include a plan with which you can enjoy matcha and sweets served by maiko, introduced from 1:23, a plan with which you can watch a dance, introduced from 0:47, and a plan which you can enjoy tempura and sake.
There are also plans with which you can receive a towel and Senjafuda as souvenirs.
Maiko Theater is reservation-only and it's possible to reserve the whole theater as well.

An English guide is available as well, so tourists from abroad can enjoy it too. There is a food menu that offers Kyoto cuisine as well.
