As a man, this was such a fun experience. When I checked in, I think the (male) receptionist was a bit shocked to see it was only me, but he handled it with care and I didn't feel embarrassed at all. The photoshoot itself only lasted about 10 minutes, but they do offer to take some personal pictures with your cell phone. (So you don't only get the professionally shot photos advertised!) They also have an option to go to a private shoot in a home, but the cost was like $400 or something. Something to consider if you really want to have an extra special experience.

Kyoto: 2-Hour Maiko Makeover and Photo Shoot Reviewed by

My partner and I really enjoyed this experience, the guide was personal and provided an experience we were interested in. If he didn't know the answer to a question he would research it and get back to us. Overall we found it lovely to learn about Kyoto and have someone take control for 8 hours (no more maps or wondering where to go next). For these reasons I would recommend the tour even if you've been to Kyoto before.

Learned a lot about Geishas & history of tea houses from this tour. Walked around Gion and was lucky enough to find 2 Geishas! It's great to learn about the art and culture of Geishas. Will definitely come back to Kyoto to experience more of its history.

Guide was very well informed , had a great personality and could communicate in a friendly and confident manner. Our group was mixed age/gender but the guide managed everyone very confidently and inclusively. Highlight of our trip. Thank you

Enjoyed the history and seeing a couple out-of-the-way neighborhoods. Mardi was an outstanding guide and provided an enjoyable evening visiting places we’d never have found on our own.
