Experience Details
Imagery of geisha has spread throughout the world, but have you ever seen a geisha perform? This private dining experience in Sapporo immerses you in the culinary arts of Hokkaido and the ethereal performances of geisha for an unforgettable night of Japanese traditional culture and cuisine. Experience flow: -An English-speaking guide will meet you at Cocono Susukino (about 10 minutes by train from Sapporo Station) and take you to the restaurant you selected when booking. -About an hour into the dinner, two geisha performers will appear. Watch geisha dance and play shamisen. -If time allows, you can take photos of the geisha and interact with them. Small groups will enjoy a meal at Suginome, a Hokkaido cuisine kaiseki restaurant that has served guests for over 60 years. Restaurant Osuke Bettei specializes in fresh eel, while Hokkai Shabu-Shabu offers the perfect opportunity to warm up over a hot pot of sukiyaki overseeing the town. To book either of these two options, please use the options tab below. Larger groups of 20 guests or more can dine at Kita no Aji Osuke, which has a custom stage made of Japanese cypress wood, or Otaru Bettei, which has a large hall that is great for dinner parties. For something a little different, groups of more than ten guests can enjoy a lounge afterparty at the Special Club. If you are interested in one of these three, please enquire with the host upon booking. Please note that the default restaurant will be Suginome. To select another venue, please book using the options tab or enquire directly with the host. Whichever restaurant your party chooses, an hour of dining will be complemented by a duo performance featuring a shamisen player and dancer. After the show, you can learn traditional fan dance techniques and play parlor games (known as ozachiki asobi) with the geisha. If time allows, your guide will facilitate conversation or photo-ops with the performers.
