Contrary to popular belief, geisha are not the Eastern equivalent of a prostitute; a misconception originating in the West due to interactions with Japanese oiran courtesans, whose traditional attire is similar to that of geisha. The most literal translation of geisha into English would be "artist", "performing artist", or "artisan". This term is used to refer to geisha from Western Japan, which includes Kyoto and Kanazawa.
My mother and I wanted a traditional Japanese experience and we got it with Cocomo! They were very professional and inviting. We thoroughly enjoyed our geisha experience and highly recommend anyone who wants the same to go there.

That was a joy for me. I've been to Japan many times, but looking at it through fresh eyes? That was the best.
