Photographer's Note

In the old area of Kyoto you will still be able to see some Geiko (Geisha) or Maiko (apprentice Geiko). They are usually on the way to or from a lunch or dinner appointment with clients in the same area.
When you ask, you will most of the time be able to take a picture.
The total number of Geisha and Maiko is declining since a long time and currently there are only about 1,000 left in the whole of Japan with most of them in the Kyoto area and in Tokyo.
With this picture, I was lucky she was carrying the umbrella as it was raining this day, giving the picture just a bit more than usual.
