Maiko's obi. Photo: "Mameteru" by fuyou-hime on Flickr.

Katsuryu, a young maiko who recently made her debut in Kamishichiken, prepares to serve matcha, whisked, powdered green tea, to guests at Kitano Tenmangu Shrine, in Kyoto, Japan

Maiko's obi (sash)..... Want those shoes!!

I love the colors and patterns as well as the smoothness of the white paint. Her black hair also makes a really nice contrast.

la grace est une impression furtive et fragile..une beauté hors de ce monde ...insaisissable et pourtant si offerte a ceux qui savent,les sens en éveil...baisser les yeux ! frederique

Geishas are expert entertainers in traditional Japanese arts of the highest calibre.

In Miyagawacho, there were two misedashi, or debut of a new maiko. There was Fukusuzu and Toshichika. This is Toshichika, who went to the okiya (geisha houses), ochaya (tea houses), and local stores to thank everyone for supporting her.

Look at these colors.The robes, the red lamp and the plant. Biddy Craft/ Maiko at Pontocho District, Kyoto Japan

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.
