  • Notes

    Important: In the event of rain after 2-3 pm, the walk will be called off and re-scheduled for the next day. Even though we meet in front of the Minamiza theater, they are not responsible for contacting me. If there is a problem, or you are worried that you are not in the right place, please use the pay phone to the right of the theater near the vending machines. You will be calling my cell phone so a 10 yen coin will not provide sufficient time to have a conversation. 100 yen should suffice. Don't forget to bring your camera.


  • See beautiful alleyways, architectures and geisha schools
  • Have a chance to take pictures at different locations
  • Learn about the Geisha Culture during your walk
