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

Osaka City Tips (2)

Osaka - Busy City in Kansai

Osaka is a big and bust city. We were there mainly for shopping. 2 places we went, Umeda and Namba. These are great shopping start points. Dotonobori is a must go. Just observing the busy lifestyle of the people is also interesting.

As for turist attractions, I would say there are a few :
- Osaka Castle
- Osaka Aquarium
- Dotonbori
- Tennoji Park

USJ - Universal Studios Japan

Universal Studios Japan opened its doors in Osaka at the end of March 2001 and proved an instant hit. When you combine American fun and imagination with Japanese organisation and efficiency, the result is a state-of-the-art theme park that charms, delights, fascinates and thrills. All the attractions from the original park in Hollywood are there, plus all the usual shops and restaurants. Useful tip: to save queuing at the gate, you can buy your ticket for the train ride to Universal City and entrance to the park at any JR train station with a Green Window in the Kyoto-Osaka area.
