Tea with a maiko

One of the highlights of the Kyoto Photography Workshop was tea with a maiko in Gion.

The maiko we met was Kanohiro-san who is just 18 years old.  After her years of training she will become a geiko (Kyoto geisha).  We took photos and asked her many questions with Yuki interpreting for the group. Kanohiro san was very happy that we were so excited to met her.

She gave us tea, performed a traditional dance, then posed for individual and group photographs. A really memorable experience with a lovely young lady.
