The neck of a maiko

Newer Older

Sometimes if one is lucky then one can meet a maiko or geisha in the small streets of Gion in Kyoto. Like this one who was so kind to wait for a few moments so that people like me could take some pictures of her :)

    "I lived in Japan for 4 years and I met a Geisha. I will never forget the experience of such beauty." These words are in my note behind her neck. Aloha from Hawaii, Moanalani :)

    i've seen this before and may have already commented on it, but i saw this again on explore.. and it's just so good!

    to even see a maiko is such a rarity, but the back of her neck, with that paint, is something else.. you've captured a special moment, and your treatment adds to its greatness. thank you for having this here.
