Maiko?

I’m not sure if these were real Maiko or just a couple of young ladies pretending to be such. You can tell they are not Geisha (Geiko since we were in Kyoto) because of their hair ornamentation. We saw lots more during the day rooming around Gion and the area east of Gion. I’ll show you some more pictures later. Again, I have no idea which were “real” and which were made up for the day.

We did see a real Maiko in the evening while roaming the streets of Gion. She hustled from her okiya to a tea house (ochaya). I’ll have a photograph of her and some nice, night shots from Gion in a future entry.
