Two “wannabe” Maiko and friend in Higashiyama District, Kyoto – 2009


Here is another example of old and new mixed together. These two “wannabeMaiko were strolling around Higashiyama District carrying their super-tecnologic Japanese huge smartphones, cheerfully chatting with a friend in “plain” clothes.

  1. It’ s a great picture! I think that they are more probably girls trying on maiko costume though because you don’t usually see maiko san walking like that. The shoes seem a bit low as well.

  2. Oh, if you are interested to find out how to determine if a Maiko and Geiko is real and fake I recently made a blog about it ^^ You can find it here http://moushifj.wordpress.com/2013/02/21/maiko-and-geisha-how-to-tell-the-real-from-the-fake/
