Somaro Maiko Teahouse Somaro Maiko Teahouse

With a history that dates back to the 17th century, this teahouse in Sakata offers classical Japanese entertainment by maiko (apprentice geisha) in a luxurious setting with gorgeous artwork and Kyoto-influenced architecture. Exclusive establishments by tradition, teahouses (ochaya) can still sometimes be expensive for the budget traveler, but at Somaro guests can see a maiko dance, held daily, for very reasonable cost. Those who would like to enjoy a more private viewing can make reservations for a lunch performance, which includes a special bento lunch.
