Oiran Parade (花魁道中)

花魁道中

My co-star had a parade after the show at Edo Wonderland. She (the oiran) had on some serious, platform geta. Rather than just walk down the street, she had a special move which involved sort of kicking out her foot as she went.

    One might never know or suspect it but when we first got over there, in Japan, the ladies were giving up their traditional garb for Western Dress. They did their best to walk in high heel shoes but the hospital was filled with twisted and broken ankles. It was walking on the ankle more than the high heels.
