I’ve received a lot of messages from you saying that this Tumblr’s warning is an error/scam/hoax. Thank you very much for them, I had no idea about this issue! You’re the best, literally ^^

Well, I got upset because I’ve got several warnings from Tumblr in the past (people really report my blog) and it was the reason why I got scared about my blog’s future. I’m still uncertain about this case.

The queue is on after all but I reduced it to 1 post per day. I promise I will deliver more very soon! Thank you for your support and care.

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.

I put my blog on hiatus now because someone keeps on reporting me to Tumblr for “copyright infringement” and today I have received “the final warning” from Tumblr. To be honest, I don’t want my blog to be deleted by the staff because I’ve put too much effort to create such blog or more likely, a whole informative site about geisha community.

So for now, goodbye and thank you very much. I will be back soon hopefully, though! For now you can follow my Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/geishablog

During whole summer you can visit Miyagawacho to have a drink with maiko and watch they dancing in yukata, so if you are in Japan right now just head to Kyoto!
