Those interested in dressing up in full geisha regalia may do so at one of several shops and studios around Kyoto. A friendly staff performs a complete maiko transformation on the guest using meticulous make-up techniques, hair styling methods, and ornate kimonos. Girls may then walk the surrounding neighborhood as they soak up the authenticity of this respected custom, or take professional-grade photos in and around traditional Japanese architecture.
