Like anyone else, I am curious about Geisha (芸者). As you may heard before, unless you actually book for an exclusive Geisha experience (that will cost you a fortune), hoping to meet a Geisha randomly is as miraculous as seeing a unicorn. As I am traveling in a low budget, I can only afford to book a ¥2500-experience with a Maiko. Maiko is an apprentice of a Geisha. To have a great career, a Geisha should served as a Maiko for a few years. People can start to be a Maiko in an early age (as early as 9 yo). This picture captured two Maiko (舞子 or 舞妓). The next post will be a short video (real time though, not a time-lapse) to give you a more idea about the Kyomai (Kyoto Style Dance) danced by these Maiko. #travelling #japan #kyoto #gion #gioncorner #meiko #geiko #geisha #lifewelltravelled
