Maiko

Two Maiko
Shot in the city of Gion, Kyoto Tetsu Ozawa

Two girls wore a costume of Maiko

Not only the buildings, but also the people walking were soaking in the long-standing tradition here. During I rambled along the streets, I found two girls.

They wore face powder and a kimono. Besides, a big hair accessory was on their heads. They were dressed in the fashion of Maiko. When I asked them fro shooting, they allowed and stood in from of my camera choppily. I thought they were not real apprentice geisha.
