When you come to Japan, one of the places you must visit is Kyoto:
How about spending your time with Maiko?
Maiko, Apprentice Geisha, undergoes strict trainings everyday.
As traditional reasons even Japanese people rarely can see Maiko:
Definitely this will be a great experience for you!
We recommend this Tour: River Terrace Dinner with Maiko.
You can watch Maiko performance and Japanese traditional games, with Japanese-Style Dinner on the River Terrace, called “Kawadoko” or just “Yuka” (means Floor) in Japanese.

This River Terraces are available only in Summer: May to September.

As of July, 2014, there are a total of 18 World Heritage Sites located within Japan.
14 of these are cultural heritage sites, and four are natural. We would like to introduce to you six of these World Heritage Sites here. First up are Japan’s natural sites, and we would like to start with Shiretoko, known as Japan’s last frontier. Next, we have the Shirakami-Sanchi, a forested mountainous area of Siebold’s beech trees untouched by human hands.
For cultural sites, Shirakawa-go is a beautifully preserved example of Japan’s Gassho-style houses. Itsukushima Shrine, with its Otorii built in the sea itself, leaves a powerful impression on visitors. Himeji-jo is said to be the greatest Japanese castle in existence.
The Kii Mountains have a number of temples and shrines built amidst the forests and mountains, and see large numbers of worshippers each year. Visit these and other World Heritage Sites in Japan to experience the real Japan, a Japan filled with verdant forests and cultural masterpieces.
