Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Friday, 27 February 2009

The Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo has launched an Azuma Odori accommodation package, which includes premium seats for the 85th Azuma Odori geisha dance performances at Shinbashi Enbujo Theatre in Ginza, Tokyo.

This cultural accommodation package provides a rare opportunity for guests to experience the countrys rich traditional traditions first hand.

Founded more than 150 years ago, Shinbashi Karyukai has been renowned since the Meiji era as one of the most exclusive groups of geisha in Japan. When the Shinbashi Enbujo Theatre first opened its doors in 1925, there were dance performances of Azuma Odori, performed by the geisha of the Shinbashi Karyukai. The theatre still stages grand events that give geisha a chance to display their traditional dancing, singing, and shamisen playing skills honed over many years of rigorous training.

Available from 29 May to 1 June 2009, the MO Azuma Odori package starts from JPY 85,000 and includes:

One night accommodation for two in a Deluxe Room or a Premium Grand Room

Two tickets for the 85th Azuma Odori geisha dance performances held at the Shinbashi Enbujo Theatre in Ginza, Tokyo

Shokado bento lunches for two prepared by six exclusive ryotei restaurants: Tokyo Kiccho, Shinkiraku, Kanetanaka, Matsuyama, Yonemura and Yamane (served at the theatre restaurant prior to the show)

American breakfast for two at Kshiki all-day dining on the 38th floor

A choice of early check-in from 11am or late check-out until 5pm

The package rates assume double occupancy and are inclusive of a 5% consumption tax. A 10% service charge and a daily municipal accommodation tax of JPY 200 per person will be charged separately. A cancellation charge will apply after 29 April 2009.
