A Special Geisha Experience Coming to Otaru

If you're headed to Hokkaido this January or February, then get ready for the very special Geisha Experience in Otaru over two special evenings. You'll get to experience a unique Japanese dinner with the last seven geisha in Hokkaido, where you'll enjoy a night of traditional geisha games and dancing, for a truly memorable Japanese experience.

With the few geisha that do perform in Hokkaido each year, usually only in the city of Sapporo, this is a rare opportunity that is normally not accessible to the general public. With the event proudly presented by Kutchan Tourism, the Geisha Experience in Otaru has been arranged especially for those in Otaru, Niseko and nearby areas, so that they too can enjoy a traditional geisha experience at a very exclusive price.

After the success of the event last season, the Geisha Experience in Otaru is proudly returning again to Otaru for another year to enchant audiences once again. Take a look inside the captivating and mysterious world of the geisha from last season's event and get ready to be a part of it this new year.

The ticket price includes transport to and from Niseko to Otaru, so the experience is an ideal addition to your winter vacation in Niseko. You will get to enjoy free time to explore Otaru before dinner with a visit to Sakaimachi Street, where they can enjoy glass-makers, music box museum, seafood shops and bakeries; Otaru canal; and also stopping at the Old Aoyama Villa, where you'll discover even more about Japanese culture. See traditional art forms like Japanese paintings, calligraphy, intricate woodwork and handcrafted roof tiles uncommon to the area.
