Maiko again

Gion area, Kyoto sightseeing

She is so called maiko. She is about to pay the neighborhood a courtesy call. It is in the middle of summer but she wears several kimono. As maiko builds up her experience, she with kimono doesn't break a sweat at all even outside in hot summer.

This is name card that some maiko gave me. It is very small and nice card.

zannnie: Now I'm in Tokyo but I go there once a month. Gion is one of the most facsinating spots for me, especially at night.
