CHI-KA has invited four geishas from Fukugawa, the oldest geisha district in Tokyo, Japan, to visit Dubai and give us an up close and personal insight into their art form and way of life.

We are pleased to announce that we will have a special guest appearance on the night : SAYUKI, the first Westerner in the 400 year history to be accepted as a geisha.

She will be joined by 3 of her Japanese geisha colleagues.

Sayuki is specialized in social anthropology, and will presenting us with a 45min talk on the art of geisha culture, including her personal journey.
