Our last day in Japan was also my 40th BIrthday, so to celebrate we went to Hamadaya. Here we enjoyed Japanese tradition, culture, and dance. The district in the neighborhood of Hamadaya called Yoshi-cho is one of six Geisha quarters in Tokyo. Yoshi-cho has long been known as a quarter of first-class Geisha. Yoshi-cho’s Geisha are described as sophisticated, lively, and good performers. Over the years, they have gained the reputation of being enthusiasts of Japanese traditional music and dance – all with the accomplished playing of music played on the shamisen (a banjo-like three stringed musical instrument played with a plectrum). We had a fantastic tasting menu meal and so much fun playing traditional Geisha party games!
