★ Kawadoko Dinner with Maiko

Would you like to know one of the secret places in Kyoto?


Takao is located in the north of Kyoto, a bit remoted area, but very famous for its breathtakingly beauty with full of true nature. Surrounded by great natural beauty and the Kitayama cedars.



Just one hour of journey by train from the central Kyoto, you will be welcomed by these heavenly peaceful nature of beauty.





During the summer months, Takao becomes popular for people to escape from the heat.


The Momijiya, founded in Takao in 1907, is very traditional ryokan with Japanese style rooms.









What is the special feature of Momijiya is their summer dinner plan that includes dance entertainment by maiko.













Spread out through three floors for Kawadoko-style Kyoto special cuisine. You can taste the best of the local cuisine including one of their specialties, "river fish", such as the ayu (sometimes known in English as the sweetfish for the flavor of its flesh).



Enjoy dining on a "kawadoko" platform built out over a scenic river, listen to the sound of the stream and cool off from the summer heat.




Maiko and Kawadoko are almost symbols of Kyoto!

MUST EXPERIENCE that you can't be missed.





Even if you were walking throughout Gion-area for so long, you may need a super luck to come across a real maiko.


But here in Takao, you don't have to feel exhausted from chasing, nor frustrated to take a better view of photo of maiko-san.


After you enjoy a lovely dancing performance of Maiko along with the Japanese traditional Kaiseki cuisine. Maiko will come to your table one by one for pictures with you! Don't forget to carry your camera!! :)
