kyoto / maiko / geisha / girls / japanese / women / escalator Maiko (geisha apprentices) wearing summer kimono (yukata) make their way to lunch at the Takashimaya department store, Kyoto, Japan. Facing the camera, the maiko Mameharu.
Geisha performing Traditional Japanese Dance with Fan - seen in Kyoto in spring. When i visit Japan, will definitely not miss the KABUKI. I think they are the most graceful performers next to the ballet dancers. This fan dance is in my "must watch list"
