Somaya, built in the Edo period, was a renowned restaurant in Sakata for many years. In 1996, it was renovated into a tourist facility and its name changed to Somaro. Here, visitors can enjoy watching Sakata maiko (similar to geisha) dance twice a day, at noon and at two. At the first show, you can have a delicious maiko bento (boxed lunch) while watching the dance.
Open: 10:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.
Closed: Wednesdays, New Year holidays
Admission Fee: 700 yen (+extra fee for the maiko dance performance; fees may vary by shows; see details on the back of this map.)
