Explore the Intriguing Culture of Geishas

If you have ever been intrigued by the mysterious world of geishas, fulfill your dream of living like a traditional maiko (an apprentice geisha) for a few hours. Studio Shiki is one of Kyoto's premier studios specializing in the authentic maiko makeover experience. You are in good hands as the professional hair & make-up artists and photographers at Studio Shiki are some of the best in their respective fields.

The Traditional Makeover

The makeup session is the first step in the transformation process. With a white powder/foundation base, red and black eyeliner, reddish eyebrows, red lipstick, and a light stroke of blush, your striking maiko look will be complete. Next comes the zen-katsura or wig-wearing session for the unique hairstyle adorned by the maikos. Step into a hand-picked kimono of your choice from an impressive collection of eye-catching colors and designs. The final step in your makeover process includes a kimono fitting session, with a matching obi (sash) and okobo (wooden sandals).

A professional photographer will guide you while taking pictures inside the studio. After your photoshoot, you will get some time to capture more photographs and videos with your camera. Although the process can go on for more than 2 hours at the very least, the result is so fabulous that it makes the experience worthwhile.
