Lovely Omotenashi from Maiko and Geiko in Kamishichiken Beer Garden
Kamishichiken Beer Garden/ 上七軒ビアガーデン
Venue: Kamishichiken Kaburenjo Theater
July 1st - September 5th, every year
If you are not familiar with the term “Omotenashi”, this is a hospitability that Japanese people are proud of. Beer garden opens only during the summer time and many people visit to enjoy their time with their colleagues and friends while having a beer. What is different from a regular beer garden is that there are about 6 Maiko and Geiko each night to entertain and show their hospitalities to their guests. As Kamishichiken is located in a calm area in Kyoto, you may enjoy the tranquil time with...more Maiko and Geiko. It is from July 1st to September 5th.

Enjoy the time with Maiko and Geiko
When you imagine the face of Maiko and Geiko, it is probably the image of white-painted faces. However, their faces in this beer garden are not white-painted but their hair and outfit are the same as you may imagine. Although Maiko and Geiko don’t speak English, they may show you the delicate Omotenashi for you.
