Daily Photo: Maiko in Kyoto
December 31, 2008 · Print This Article
As I left Kiyomizu-dera and wandered about on the small streets leading to the Gion area of Kyoto, I noticed a bit of commotion at the end of one street. Two maiko were walking down the street and stopping to pose with people who asked them to do so. This willingness to pose makes me suspicious about whether or not they were true maiko or not. Regardless, they looked exquisite. For photographing them, I didn’t just want them to mug for my lens, so I tried to catch them in-between posing for others.
