Durante la temporada de verano, los lugareños de Kioto escapan del calor de la ciudad para disfrutar de una cena y espectáculo relajantes en el restaurante Takao Momijiya sobre el río Kiyotaki. Únase a ellos en la elevada terraza al aire libre del restaurante, conocida como "kawadoko", y vea maiko (similares a geishas) interpretando canciones y bailes durante toda la cena. Esta experiencia culinaria de 90 minutos es obligatoria para viajeros que desean disfrutar el sabor de las tradiciones culturales de Japón y solo tiene lugar entre junio y septiembre.
We had an amazing time and loved meeting the Maiko. The only problem I had was with our host, who circled our table and reprimanded my teenage son for not eating the food and reprimanded me for needing to educate him. It was really embarrassing, as the people around us were staring at us and this woman was challenging me, asking me what I feed my son at home and then shaming me because I answered hamburgers and macaroni and cheese. I had given my son permission to taste all the foods, not shovel it into his mouth. One bite was enough for me but this woman was all over us and it was awful. At first I angrily wished to give the rating one star because it ruined my dinner to be spoken to this way for at least 20-30 minutes but the dinner was wonderful in many other ways. It was a very expensive dinner and not appreciated. But we loved the Maikos. They were so sweet and beautiful. We were so charmed! We would love to come back again one day.
