The Geisha Fukunami in Kyo Odori
The geisha Fukunami performs in the first scene of the 58th Kyo Odori, "Tasteful Natural Attractions in Kyoto." This year's Kyo Odori will be the 63rd, but photography is sadly no longer permitted. (Believe me, I checked!) All the photos I'll be posting this month and next month from Miyagawa-cho's biggest dance will be from 2007 - 2009 when I photographed several geiko and maiko I know.
