In 5 easy minutes one day Maiko experience report

Entrance In front of the shop's Nolen curtain.
AM9:00
On the day we found Maicachan
at the front entrance.

Maica is located in Kyoto, Gion- Miyagawa-cho, where the area is preserved by the kyoto government and many TV or movie shots are taken, so while looking for the shop you can enjoy the old Geisha quarter streets.

Entrance In front of the shop's Nolen curtain.
AM9:05
Welcome!

First you just have to fill out a sign-up form.
The staff are always kind and willing to help.

You can find one that best fits you out of the 50 they have.
AM9:20
Doing our hair
like a real Maiko.

Out of a wide selection they customize and fit each persons wig.
Maica has so full and half wigs, so you're sure to find one that fits.

AM9:30
Next, Make-up!

First we put on the white and eye-make-up and then the lips.
The staff spoke to us and made it comfortable and relaxing for us.

AM9:45
Finish up the make-up.
Next up is the kimono fitting.

There were so many, so it was hard to choose from.
It was great to hear the staff's advice, which made it easy.

You have to put on your Maiko stage face.
AM10:00
Finish Dressing-up.
Next the studio pictures.

It's a little difficult at first,
but the staff will show you how to take nice pictures.

AM10:10
Freely take photos up to 60 minites!

It's the largest Maiko experience studio in Kyoto.
So you can enjoy taking photos freely around the different areas,
like the tea ceremony room.
We were able to take pictures with our own cameras and cell phones,
so we spent a great time there.

AM10:20
Walking around the streets where real maikos walk.

The expert staff gave us directions to all the great picture spots.
It was great to walk around with the staff and it was so much fun.

AM10:45
Taking off the kimono and make-up.
Then the usual make-up.

At Maica there are 6 lavatories,
so you can take your white make-up off with ease.
We also have a powder room for your usual make-up for after.

AM11:00
Finish Maiko Dress up!
Recieving the studio pictures.

It's just a short walk to Gion Hanamikoji or Kawaramachi,
so you can relax and go sightseeing after.

CD-R is optional
*We will hand over the pictures & CD-R on the day
