Description

Shopping at the shops that geisha use gives a fascinating insight into the beauty of this very elegant world and a glimpse into the incredible craftsmanship involved in making products that have been around for centuries. 

This tour may be run by Sayuki herself from time to time, and by request, but will usually be run by Sayuki’s trainees. This is a way to let the little prospective geisha practice their English skills and get some income during the crucial first year when they are training to become geisha. Do help us help the little geisha to continue the beautiful geisha tradition in Japan.
