It was my very first time to become Maiko! It was surprising that it only took about 3 hours to change and photo shooting, and was also easy to transform. All of the staff were very nice and kind, so I could enjoy talking with them. Many of them speak English and there are some Chinese staff in this shop, so please feel free to visit and ask any questions!

Although it is hard to wear special shoes called "Okobo" at first, you may get used to it eventually. Please be careful in the slopes as it is slippery. Many people would take a photo of you when you wear Maiko outfit!

Transform Into Maiko (stroll plan)
If you would like to try an experience of becoming a maiko, we highly recommend this plan! It is easy as you don’t need to bring anything to this shop. After filling out the form with your information, you will move to a room to change your clothes to an undershirt provided by this shop. Then you will have your make up! It is very interesting that face powder dough would be applied to your face, and it feels a bit cool. Your hair would be tied up by net to put on a maiko wig. You can choose your...more favorite kimono from many selections. It will be tied a little tight, so if it is too much, please don’t hesitate to tell the staff.

*It is ¥8,900 (till February 25th. As this price may change after the period, please check with the shop)
