Maiko Dress-up Experience in a traditional Japanese Garden

Change into a maiko with Japanese makeup, a gorgeous kimono, and a brilliant hair ornament and take memorable photos in a traditional Japanese courtyard

The venue for the maiko experience is a real teahouse in the Gion district established in the Taisho Era, which is a 1-minute walk from the south gate of the Yasaka Shrine. When you come to the shop you will be immediately turned into a maiko.  After putting on special underwear for a kimono, Japanese make-up will follow. And last you can change into your favorite gorgeous kimono. You can then select a Japanese hair ornament that matches your style. In the authentic Tsuboniwa in Kyo-Machiya, water-filled bamboo-tubes and garden lanterns have been arranged and the beautiful backgrounds of the four seasons make the appearance of the maiko shine more. 

In the Tsuboniwa, the photographer, who knows the essence of the beauty of maiko, will teach you how to pose like a maiko and will take pictures of your maiko appearance from the best angles. The garden will become a private space for one group of people during photography. You can also take pictures by yourself for 10 minutes in the garden or in front of the store using your own smartphone or camera. Take off the kimono and the wig, also take off your make-up and go back to your old self. When you've finished dressing, please receive the photo album and take back with you.
