Kimono Lunch in Kyoto
When visiting Maikoya Kyoto, there are many opportunities for experiencing traditional Japanese activities. You do not want to miss having a kimono lunch with a Maiko. A traditionally trained actress, dancer, and entertainer, the Maiko is an apprentice to a Geisha. A Maiko is knowledgeable about the arts, hospitality, food and drink, social skills and how to care for guests. Also, a Maiko learns how to play games and other forms of entertainment. The kimono lunch is served in a private room of the Tea House which is also where the Maiko lives. Members of the public have historically been denied admittance to Tea Houses. Only people with connections to another patron were allowed inside. However, thanks to Maikoya Kyoto now you can experience the wonder of an exquisite full course lunch made with the freshest, seasonal foods served by a Maiko. From the moment you choose your kimono and have the professional staff wrap it the proper way you will be enveloped by the tradition and spirit of the lunch. As you are immersed in the event, you will find yourself transported to a different time. The traditions of the Maiko reach back to the 17th century. Experience for yourself the rituals that make the kimono lunch so memorable. The Kyoto kimono lunch is available for both visitors and residents. You will never think of lunch in the same way.
