Place
Geisha Evening in Kanazawa, Higashi Chayagai district
Michelle:Kanazawa's geisha districts were second only to Kyoto in their heyday. Kaikaro Teahouse in the Higashi Chaya district is open to the public for geisha evenings a certain times of year. Highly recommended evening to experience entertainment performed by professional geisha, with an entertaining overview from the teahouse mother Lady Baba.
