Geisha & Kimono recommended in Tokyo, too.
Hi, I'm Katy.
I really like to travel to Japan for the high-quality products and wonderful food!
This time, I would like to feature COREDO Muromachi, the shopping complex, which is a unique collection of shops and gourmet restaurants.
It also offers incredibly rare experiences for travelers such as interacting and playing traditional games with geisha!
This complex has the feeling of traditional Japanese style with a clean environment and great ambience.
Even if you've only just arrived in Japan, it's easy to enjoy COREDO Muromachi!
You will definitely have a fantastic time and you can buy plenty of souvenirs too.
Don't miss out on these activities and shops!

Dance Performance and Traditional Games With Geisha
This is the best activity to learn more about Japanese culture.
You can enjoy traditional dancing, music, and interacting with geisha.
It's really fun to join in the traditional games like "tora-tora", "tosenkyo" and "konpira fune fune".
My favorite game was "Tosenkyo", which is so exciting and fun.
It’s a traditional game, even though it is rarely played by the Japanese nowadays!
The rules seem simple, just hold a fan and try to knock an object from the target to get points, but for me, it was kind of a hard skill to learn because I'd never played it before!
You'll be able to understand the game and enjoy yourself thanks to the English-speaking staff!
And don't forget to take as many photos as possible with the geisha!

All of the ingredients for Makanai's high-quality products are made in Japan.
The most popular item is their hand cream, which is all natural and even suitable for babies.
Their konjak sponge for the face and rice-bran bag are super-star items too!
I got to try the lotion myself and it made my hands feel super soft.
There are so many nice products here which are high quality, have a cute design, and a reasonable price!
