      Incredibly lovely. I want a camera like yours, but that's not going to be enough to capture the kind of pictures you do!

      you are lucky to be able to go to Kyoto, I'm living in Japan for very long, but Kyoto is so far from my place......

      Opal in the Rough: These are wigs, but a maiko styles her own hair. Geiko wear katsura, but style their hair for a special tea ceremony. :)
