Kanazawa Geisha Experience 2022-23

Kanazawa Geisha’s Traditional Performing Arts and Hospitality

In Kanazawa, there are three teahouse districts. Higashi, Nishi, and Kazuemachi. In these teahouses, about 40 geishas have inherited the traditional culture of hospitality. Usually, teahouses in Kanazawa are unable to take reservations from first time customers, but the city of Kanazawa has a special experience plan they created with the purpose to preserve the traditional culture of teahouses. This makes it easy for anyone to enjoy!

Experience watching geishas dance, play taiko drums and more. There are even chances to interact and perform together with the geishas as well during these events! Come join for the experience to witness Kanazawa’s geisha! 

♦Due to the effects of the new coronavirus, the activities may be cancelled depending on the infection spread status and more.
