    The one in yellow is Maori. :) Maori is a Geiko now, which is a fully-fledged Geisha. Here she is a Maiko, an apprentice.

    Beautiful photo, the colors are very intense and very eye-catching. Thank you for sharing such a lovely photo! :D

    The other maiko is Ichimiyo. She retired a few years ago.

    Thank you for all the feedback. It is great to hear (after 2 and half years) how they are getting on and finally knowing their names!
