"Tuskikusa-an" is a kyo-Machiya house that is nothing short of intrigue. Located in Miyagawa-cho, right next to the famous and historical Gion, you can rent out the entire house for yourselves. Despite this property being located in the middle of one of Kyoto's most popular and exciting areas, take one step inside this Machiya and find yourself a world away from the busy city life.
Many geisha, or geiko, have spent their youths in these hanamachi districts practicing and perfecting their skills in Japan's traditional and high-class form of entertainment - singing, dancing, musical instruments, and more. You can find subtle reminders of this colourful past throughout the house. This particular kyo-machiya is owned by a former geisha, also known as geiko or maiko, who worked at one of the many O-cha-ya found in Kyoto's hanamachi districts. Although o-cha-ya can quite literally be translated as "tea house," it holds a history much more rich and complex than what the name suggests. Even today, O-cha-ya are establishments where these geiko and maiko go to perform high-class entertainment for its patrons.
