Bar Hostess Walking In Front Of The Traditional Houses

Bar hostess walking
Shot in the city of Gion, Kyoto Tetsu Ozawa

A young woman, dressed up and ready for work, was walking steadily down the street lined with traditional houses

This area is an entertainment district which has a long history. And the old fashioned houses are well preserved along the streets because this area was not bombed during WWII. The traditional wooden houses stood side by side.

During I stopped by the roadside, a young woman passed by me. Although the architectures around here was old-fashioned, she wore a backless dress of today. Apparently, she was a bar hostess. I enjoyed seeing the contrast between her and the houses.
