Maiko Chiyoko and Mameroku perform in Reitasai Hono Buyo Matsuri (April 2014) It is held each year at the Heian Shrine. Maiko of Miyagawacho, Pontocho, Gion Kobu and Gion Higashi perform a dance in dedication to the arrival of spring.
Today in Kyoto: Gion’s Shirakawa Yoizakura photoshoot!
Every April, two ladies of GIon Kobu or Miyagawacho gather at the Philosopher’s Path in the Gion’s Shirakawa area for a free photoshoot under cherry blossoms.
This year a geiko and a maiko were chosen: Makiko san of Gion Kobu and Toshimomo san of Miyagawacho. For many years it was a privilege available only for Gion Kobu’s maiko, but lately Miyagawacho has started taking part in this photoshoot.
