Young Woman Wearing Face Powder And Kimono

Woman wearing kimono

Her appearance looked like as of she came from the past

Shot at Senso-Ji, a Buddhist temple in Asakusa, Tokyo.

Walking around the precinct, I found a young woman wearing face powder and kimono. She might be a geisha. Her white face was eye-catching in the crowd. And she could enjoy it. Everything she did seemed intentional. Anyway, the way she moved was elegant.

I thought the foreign travelers felt the traditional atmosphere of Japan when they saw her. And I also felt an uncommonness from her. I didn't meet people like her in my daily life.
