The Japanese dance performed by geisha is subtle yet set to a story imbued with passionate emotion that will captivate all who watch it.
In addition to their dancing, one more reason for geisha's popularity is the traditional games that can be played with them during dinner parties.
Arima Onsen also offers a cafe experience where you can meet geisha and enjoy green tea with Japanese sweets.
