This tour taught me wisdom and insider tips that lasted for my entire trip in Japan. Sayuki is an amazing person -- an anthropologist turned Geisha -- and I feel so fortunate I got to meet her. I also got to meet another Geisha from her house, so it was a very wonderful experience, especially since Geisha are rare. I gained wisdom on Japanese aesthetics, color choices, and the major influence of the four seasons. She helped me buy a gorgeous kimono at a used kimono dealer, saving me lots of money off the price of a new one. She also taught me about history of Geisha, the difference between traditional and modern kimono shops, and many other things I would have completely missed had I explored Asakusa on my own. It was great to see her favorite shops, and she gave me pointers on making the most of my later trip to Kyoto. Highly recommended, there is nothing else like this tour!
