This is not only just a show, but also an experience of the authentic, traditional way with great hospitality at Kanazawa’s largest teahouse.

English speech by the landlady on geisha and teahouse culture.

At this show, Kaikaro’s landlady, Lady Baba, will provide her opening remarks in English, introduce the geisha, and clarify certain aspects of geisha culture. After enjoying the geisha’s performance, roughly ten guests at a time will be selected to join in with the authentic style. Guests will partake in traditional party attractions next to one of the geisha on the stage, such as Taiko drumming and a game.

• Spend 90 minutes in an active traditional teahouse building
• Learn about the culture in English from the landlady
• Discover some of the secrets of geisha and the system
• Live music and performance in a genuine Kanazawa Geisha play

About teahouse KAIKARO

Kanazawa is one of the few cities where traditional geisha still exist. 
Due to their strict admittance policies, however, you most likely would not be able to attend one of their performances without some difficulty.  In the Higashi Chayagai district, Kaikaro offers visitors the special opportunity to appreciate a geisha performance inside their authentic teahouse built nearly 200 years ago. It’s open to all!
(Received a star in the famed MICHELIN GUIDE Japan)

About "Lady Baba"

The landlady of the teahouse Kaikaro, who is well known as Lady Baba, considers herself as a goodwill ambassador for Kanazawa’s geisha districts. She believes presenting the traditional culture with their hospitality properly to the world is her lifetime mission. Therefore speaking through an interpreter is not enough for her, and she decided to learn English after all to deliver a speech by herself. Geisha-Evenings-in-Kanazawa is a perfect opportunity for her to introduce Kanazawa’s geisha culture to you directly.
