No verão, os residentes locais de Quioto fogem do calor da cidade para uma relaxante apresentação com jantar no restaurante Takao Momijiya no Rio Kiyotaki. Junte-se a eles no terraço elevado ao ar livre do restaurante, conhecido como "kawadoko”, e assista a apresentação de Maiko (semelhantes a gueixas) tocarem músicas e danças durante a sua refeição. Este jantar de 90 minutos é uma atração obrigatória para os viajantes que desejam provar as tradições culturais do Japão, e que funciona somente entre os meses de junho e setembro.
We had an amazing time and loved meeting the Maiko. The only problem I had was with our host, who circled our table and reprimanded my teenage son for not eating the food and reprimanded me for needing to educate him. It was really embarrassing, as the people around us were staring at us and this woman was challenging me, asking me what I feed my son at home and then shaming me because I answered hamburgers and macaroni and cheese. I had given my son permission to taste all the foods, not shovel it into his mouth. One bite was enough for me but this woman was all over us and it was awful. At first I angrily wished to give the rating one star because it ruined my dinner to be spoken to this way for at least 20-30 minutes but the dinner was wonderful in many other ways. It was a very expensive dinner and not appreciated. But we loved the Maikos. They were so sweet and beautiful. We were so charmed! We would love to come back again one day.
