We went with Fuji-san on a tour to about geishas and maikos. After walking around the area learning about the gion district and people and the culture we visited a maiko and had time tour hear about her life and the descition to become a geisha. After this tour we have a lot of repect for these Girls :) Fuji was a very good guide and knew a lot about the culture in Japan and the people in general. She was good at english and we enjoy both her knowledge and self in general.

Great tour. Really enjoyed the Tea Ceremony with the young Maiko who we were able to speak with. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly.
