舞妓 Maiko

I ran into these two Maiko on my way to Gion. They were a little hesitant when I asked if I could take a photograph. They didn't really say yes but stopped walking and talked quietly to each other. I just assumed it was OK and quickly pressed the shutter button a few times and thanked them. The attention to details on their entire outfit is amazing, and it's quite surreal to see them in person.
