Definitely the highlight of my visit to Kanazawa, and one of the top visits of my trip to Japan! If you are in Kanazawa, you are doing yourself a disservice if you don't attend one of these shows!

We were skeptical, as cultural shows for tourists tend to be beyond the tacky. But Lady Baba's show is the ideal mix of genuine information on a mesmerizing tradition and a humorous, relatable and never condescending show with the charismatic host's tongue firmly in cheek....More

Had a fun night photographing without being a Paparazzi. In Kanazawa you can pay less than $100 to experience 90 minutes with some Geisha playing traditional instruments, drinking games and learning the basics about their business.

If I remember correctly it ended around 7.20-7.30pm. I think it's good to get there about 30 mins early to book your seats.
