Yukako is now a geiko, but this photo was taken in her last year as a maiko. Even though you cannot see her hair, you can tell that she is a maiko because her tenugui (scarf) is white and red. A geiko's tenugui is white and purple. Kyoto, Japan 2008.
geisha--they always wore the back neckline as low as possible---kinda like an advertisement. supposed to be super super sexy to reveal that neck in Japan. Oh and those flip flops on 5 inch blocks---well the sewers have a tendency to over flow in the rainy season! eeewwwww.
