KYOTO 6-4-06

Gion. The geisha district.

Here, among the teahouses and private clubs, you can catch a glimpse of a Geisha or Maiko in full dress.

A Maiko is an apprentice Geisha who must must undergo a period of training that generally takes 5 years.

So Maiko are sort of "Geisha squires".

Beautiful Kyoto

Lots of steps!
That's Jason on the left.

A crowded street on the way up to Kiyomizu Temple.
You can see the tall spire at center in the distance.
