Private Dinner with a Geisha
"This experience is a guided tour with a private dinner with one maiko. This is a truly private and authentic party arrangement with a privately arranged maiko for approximately two hours. This includes a guided tour and Japanese dinner course. You may choose from two options: a half Kaiseki course option in a room with others or a full Kaiseki cour or Kaiseki ryouri is a traditional multi-course Japanese dinner that came about originally when monks would ward off hunger with warm stones. Due to the half Kaiseki option being in a room shared with others voices from neighboring tables may be overheard. But there will still be one maiko with her undivided attention to the room.For the full Kaiseki course at the Japanese restaurant’s private room there will be one maiko there specifically for your room.Both half and full Kaiseki meal options will meet at 5pm at the Minamiza theater and will go on a guided tour of the geiko and maiko district. Then at around 6pm

Internet Access Tips (2)

free internet access in Kyoto

Favorite thing i found a nice place where you can use free internet, for an hour at a time..its "Campus Plaza" near the Kyoto station.
if you exit the station on the north side, turn left and you will end up on a small street going between the station complex and a big building on your right, follow the street and when the street turns left, just around the corner of the building on the right side there is a entrance, on the ground floor you have 13 PCs connected to internet.
sign your name at the small information desk and if there is no PC available just wait for you turn.
Closed every Monday.

Internet access

Favorite thing If you want to go on the internet, for instance to see some of the VT tips about Kyoto, or just to check your mail, a good place to do so is at the Kyoto Prefectural International Centre. The centre is at the 9th floor of Kyoto station building.
The costs are 100 Yen for 15 minutes. When you enter you state the time you want. You pay and get a timer. When the timer goes off your time is up. When there is nobody waiting you can pay more and surf longer. If there are people waiting you have to get in line again.
The centre is open from 10:00 to 18:00 hours.

Fondest memory While Tom was checking the mail i enjoyed the view from the upperfloors of the Kyoto station.
