This is still continuation from previous ones.
From the middle point of procession, "Oiran" takes a ricksha. Beacuse her clothes are 25 kg weight or more, so heavy and her so high clogs are so difficult to walk long distance. 300years ago they had to walk but now OK.

You make such a wonderful photo series.
Always present interesting colors and great light, and here.
Smart these people were 300 years ago, a woman's graceful walk dk.
Today, we all look to draw in an easy way, without sacrifice.
All the best dear friend from Serbia.

at first I thought that I had seen this photo before, but then I started to notice the subtle differences. Now the oiran is sitting in a ricksha and the red umbrella is closed . Such a good continiousen of your former picture, it tells us the story of the procession.
have a good weekend and greetings from snowy Switzerland

When I seen the thumbnail on this latest in the series, I thought, she must be tired of walking in those gigantic shoes :) Once again though, the colours, expressions and positioning of the charachters are all perfect, particularly against the black wooden warehouse which showcases the colours so beautifully. A wonderful series, thank you again.

Hello dear Takero,
another lovely and intriguing scene from the procession. You have used a great subtle perspective and have framed the scene effectively. I love the sense of movement and the way the colours stand out so brilliantly against the dark wall and grey ballustrade. The red umbrella is so elegant and eye catching even in the way the man is carrying it now. I find the maintainance of these intriguing expressions most fascinanting. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely way,

Hello dear Takero-san
So the Oiran takes a rickshaw as I was wondering from the previous shot, how long she can walk with those heavy contraptions. Nice picture here, which gives a wider view & provides us a view of the surroundings as well.
Best Regards from pleasant Mumbai
