Theme day : street light or sign board

I chose street light.

This is something of a street light and a paper lantern. It is hang on the outer wall of a building along the main street at Gion district in Kyoto. Gion district is famous for Maiko and Geiko. This lantern is hang for "Miyako Odori", also known as "Cherry Dance".

This photo was actually taken in April and during April holds "Miyako Odori" every year, when all the Maikos and Geikos in Gion district dance and sing on the stage elegantly.

This month 105 City Daily Photo blogs participate in this theme day. Do pay them a visit but remember that due to time difference you might not see the proper photo.

The paper lantern was an original and inventive turn on street lights, the color turned out very nice.
