Miyako Odori 2012, Scene 8: Cherry Blossoms in Kiyomizu-dera Temple
All the geisha and maiko who performed in the first seven scenes of Miyako Odori appear on stage together in the finale, "Cherry Blossoms in Kiyomizu-dera Temple." If you had the chance to attend one of the performances this year, I hope my photos have brought back fond memories for you. If you did not have the chance to attend, I hope you have gotten a little bit of the feeling of what the dance is like from these photographs. Maybe I'll see you in the Gion Kaburenjo next year!
