Any Questions for a Maiko?

Maiko Takahina
Maiko Takahina

Takahina is a maiko from Gion Kobu in Kyoto I have been photographing for about two years now. I'm going to be photographing her one last time in 2011 in a few weeks, and I'm also going to interview her for the first time, too. Since Takahina has the reputation of being the most intelligent maiko in Gion Kobu at the moment, I'm very much looking forward to it. So, if you have a question you would like to ask Takahina, please leave a comment on this post. If I think the question is interesting and unique, I will ask her and post her reply afterwards (around 12/15). The only request I have is that the question be sincere and respectful. Also, I already have an extensive list of questions to ask her, so if yours is already on my list, I'll let you know in a response to your post and give you a chance to ask another. If all goes well, your question (and the rest of my interview with her) will appear in one of my future books.

Finally, to all my friends and family in New York, have a Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow!
