Seasonal Geisha Evenings®

Building Tour & Performance

Geisha Evenings® in Kanazawa is the popular entertainment evening since 2014, led by the landlady at teahouse Kaikaro, aka Lady Baba. You will surely experience an exquisite evening at Kaikaro - the largest teahouse in Kanazawa.

 

Since 2014, the event has been a popular evening entertainment in Kanazawa in spring (March, April) and autumn (October and November) at Kaikaro teahouse, which is the largest teahouse in Kanazawa. Lady Baba provides informative, entertaining speeches on the teahouse and Geisha culture entirely in English. The large venue, which is designated as a Preservation District for Groups of Historic Buildings in Japan, holds 30+ guests with several seating options.

After enjoying the Performance, take a tour through the precious 220-year-old teahouse architecture. The Golden Tea Room is a must-see.

FAQ

  • Unfortunately, the answer is no. Geisha performances and their hospitality are usually available exclusively at chaya teahouses, where there is a strict policy of requiring existing patrons to invite any new patrons.

    This is a rare opportunity for members of the public to experience geisha hospitality and performances, so we recommend making Geisha Evenings® reservations well in advance.

  • To show respect to the geisha and the venue, we ask that guests not dress too casually, such as just a T-shirt and jeans.

  • Entering a chaya teahouse venue with bare feet is a major faux pas in Japan. Our venues are usually traditional buildings with tatami mat floors, and stepping on them with bare feet can damage them.

    Please make sure to at least bring a pair of socks to wear during the event, and have your socks on when you arrive.

  • Guests are allowed to take a few casual photos and videos, and share them on social media. However, please do not take photos or record videos during dance performances, or when Lady Baba is speaking.
