Geisha in Gion
I was in Kyoto exploring the historic Gion district. Gion in Kyoto is one of the last places in Japan that still has an active Geisha District. Geisha have worked in Gion for more than 300 years. There is something beautiful and mysterious about a geisha. They are a moving, living, breathing works of art. Graceful, elegant and playful all at the same time.
If you are lucky, you can catch a Geiko (Kyoto Japanese dialect for Geisha) and Maiko (apprentice Geikos) moving from Tea House to Tea House in the evening.
