Hokan (male geisha) :Hachiko

Born in Edogawa-ku, Tokyo.
He joined the pantomime performance group and has performed in 22 cities in Japan and 22 cities in 9 countries overseas. He has won numerous awards.
In 2012, he became a disciple of Nanayoshi Sakuragawa. He made his first public appearance at Asakusa Geisha World(Kagai) in 2014.
Currently, he does his performances mainly in Asakusa, but he also performs in other Kagai nationwide. In addition to his mastery of the traditional dance and performance techniques of a hokan, he uses his background as a pantomime artist to bring a refreshing twist to the Geisha Kagai world.”

Geisha:Sayoko

“Oku Asakusa” is located on the north side of Sensoji Temple.
Sayoko will walk you around Oku Asakusa and introduce you to her favorite shops.

Male geisha (hokan) will perform, bringing a unique charm to downtown Tokyo.

Asakusa is a famous tourist destination in Tokyo. Sensoji Temple is famous among Japanese people, but Asakusa has many more attractions to offer beyond just the Temple. There are “geisha” who convey traditional performing arts from the past to the present.

Hachiko, who is a hokan (male geisha) in Asakusa, will do a live performance.
He is a former pantomime artist who has performed in Japan and overseas.
He will entertain you with a new hokan art form that combines the traditional skills of a hokan with the skills he learned as a pantomime artist.

This time, we will follow the geisha, Sayoko, live online as she leads you through Asakusa.”
She will recommend shops in Asakusa Kagai “Kannon Ura (Oku Asakusa)”.

We will also introduce you to some fascinating shops in Asakusa.
Among the many shops we will introduce to you, we think you will really enjoy an Amezaiku (candy craft) shop and a festival costume shop. Please enjoy watching as we explore the delicate techniques the staff use at the Amezaiku shop as well as the passionate owner of the festival costume shop.

At the end of the tour, experience the Asakusa geisha dance with commentary and an Ozashiki performance, all online.

Enjoy 90 minutes packed full of highlights about geisha life and Asakusa!
