Nocturne in Pink and Red
A maiko enters an ochaya in Miyagawa-cho in Kyoto. This photo was taken a few minutes before the photo I posted last Wednesday, and both were taken in October 2006. Unlike the photo of Kanasuzu from last week, I do not remember who this maiko is. I believe she was a very new maiko at the time, and I didn't know her name.
I regret to say that this will be my last Wednesday post until further notice, but I will still be making my regular Sunday posts (Japan time). I am going through series of major changes in my personal life now and in the coming months (all good, thankfully), but I'm just not going to have the time to blog twice a week and do everything else I need to do. I hope to resume my Wednesday posts some time in 2013, but I don't want to put a firm date on it yet. You'll know when I know!
