If you’re visiting the picturesque city of Kyoto and looking to partake in cultural experiences and practices, then book through for a maiko makeover inside the renowned Maiko-Henshin Studio Shiki! The maiko are apprentice geisha and their role is to perform songs and dances. Through this activity, you’ll go through the traditional makeover process of the maiko and get fitted with a beautiful kimono and wig. Once you’re in costume, you’ll be brought inside a picture or tea room where the studio staff will take photos of you. Feel free to get creative with your poses because you’ll be handed a small photo book at the end of the activity containing the photos that you can show off to your family and friends. If you select the packages that allow you to go on an hour-long stroll, you can roam around the nearby streets while in costume and take awesome snapshots of yourself with Kyoto’s iconic landmarks as your backdrops. This is definitely a must for those looking to experience Japanese culture through clothing.
