day 119 - Geiko, Kyoto

Maiko-san's back. White powder is mixed with water and brush-painted on, using a stencil.

The Maiko-san and The Matt... Maiko are trainee geisha / geiko.

Poster for the show where we saw the Geiko Arts of dance, singing and shamisen. In Kyoto geisha are known as Geiko-san.

Geiko still turn heads in the Gion district, Kyoto.
