Started our night photography in the Pontocho Area, when suddenly in front of me appeared a beautiful Geisha. Wait! maybe Maiko. This is quite a rare and memorable experience. Geisha are highly skilled entertainers who appear at high-end dinners, private parties and special events to add a special touch to the proceedings. They are NOT prostitutes, despite various silly rumors and portrayals in certain books and movies. Rather, they are ladies who have trained for years in the traditional Japanese arts to become the perfect entertainers. Kyoto is the heart of Japan’s geisha world. In Kyoto, however, fully-fledged geisha are properly called geiko (pronounced “gay-ko”). Young ladies, usually between the ages of 15 and 20, train for five years to become a geiko. During this period, they are known as maiko (pronounced “my-ko”). Knowledgeable insiders estimate that there are about 100 geiko and 100 maiko in Kyoto. Other cities, like Tokyo, have some version of geisha, but they don’t usually undergo the strict training that defines Kyoto’s maiko and geiko...🏮🇯🇵 〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰 📸: missmaxjade 📍: Pontocho Area 先斗町, Kyoto, Japan 〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰 #❤️‍Miss🐒 #CamboChicky #missmaxjade #missmaxjadetravels #missmaxjadeJapan . . . . . . #pontocho #geisha #nippon #Kansai #kimono #beautiful #芸者 #先斗町 #traveling #autumn #geiko #instakyoto #舞妓 #photooftheday #nightlights #makeupgirl #explorejapan #Melbournegirl #travelgirl #fashiongirl #maiko #japaneseculture #traveljapan #travelasia #japantrip gastev80 missmaxjade
