A recently opened theater in Kyoto’s Higashiyama Ward featuring maiko young female entertainers is becoming a popular tourist attraction for visitors from abroad.

At the small theater, launched in late 2016, audiences can enjoy dance performances by maiko and eat and drink with the apprentice female entertainers gaining skills in traditional dance and music, the theater operator said.

Anybody may enter the theater for a fixed charge, according to the operator. It is generally thought to be difficult to see maiko performances in Kyoto as many places offering such shows in Japan’s ancient capital refuse first-time customers.
