Maiko Geisha

Uploaded: February 01, 2015 17:57:57 | Entered: February 01, 2015 17:57:57


While in Kyoto we had a Maiko, an apprentice geisha, perform traditional dance during one of our lunches. On average a trainee spends about six years studying the traditional Japanese arts of music, dance, tea ceremony, language and being a first class hostess.
Thanks for looking!
