Misedashi-the ceremony for becoming a maiko(geisha-in-training): Gion, Kyoto
She makes her round of many ochayas, the exclusive teahouse, in Gion with a man, telling them that she will become a geisha.
Looking at her neck carefully, you can see two white ridges. That style of making up means that the ceremony is very formal.
Her shoes, okobo, is 11-centimeter-high elevated clogs and a little bell is in the hollow at the heal. So the bell rings as she takes steps.
