    She's not really a maiko, she's just a tourist playing dress up for the day. There are lots of photo studios that dress people up as maiko or geisha and let them take pictures outside...

    Still makes for fun pictures!

    Thanks for the comment mboogiedown. I had suspected this since their were three of them, and this one looks very un-japanese, but had no way to verify. Thanks for confirming. I've changed the title to reflect this now.

    Eheh, when in Japan I was cheated too... Then I figured out (expecialy when I saw a real Maiko!)

    But yours Geisha for one day is relly beautiful, anyway! Great pic!

    I like your 'geisha' shots very much!
    These are very beautiful portraits.
    The women seem so delicate and fragile...
