While teaching in Japan I celebrated my birthday. What a better way to do that then by going to Kyoto to go full on geisha? I'm not sure if the Maiko Style Experience is the same place I went to, but it seems to provide all the things that my photo experience did. Dressing up as geisha or maiko is popular for groups of women in a wedding party or for a mother daughter experience. There are even opportunities for men to dress as samurai here. During my experience my hair was put in a hair net, my face and neck were painted, a large wig was placed on me, I work the split toe socks, picked out my own kimono, and extremely tall wooden sandals. I posed with a paper umbrella, a fan, and a ball. You can get photos and little cards with your picture on them. Try this unique experience and you'll never regret it!
