Important message for tourists in Kyoto

Great news! Maiko Fukunae has just become a senior maiko! [SOURCE]

After two years of training, she advanced to senior status. What’s changed? She’s now wearing the ofuku hairstyle (seen above) with silver hair accessory shaped in her okiya's crest. She decorated her hairstyle with one big (and modest) bellflower kanzashi for September. What is more, as she is the Miyagawacho maiko, she is tying her obiage from now on.

Congratulations, Nae san!

Beautiful geiko Chisako by Gremetti on Flickr
Chisako is one of my favourites - I follow her career since I saw a documentary about her. She’s really stubborn and hard-working girl.

Surprisingly, there were two portraits of geisha’s apprentices, even though during the war this profession was slowly dying out.

2014’s Hassaku day in Gion Kobu by @ikey7o on Instagram
Firstly maiko Satsuki appeared in front of her okiya half-dressed, only n yukata with no collar at all but her stage white makeup. It looked like she had to run somewhere else suddenly… She smiled to the swarm of photographers, walked off and then came back to the okiya to change into black formal kimono for Hassaku celebrations.
