舞妓絵葉書 maiko postcard

Katsuryu, a young maiko who recently made her debut in Kamishichiken, prepares to serve matcha, whisked, powdered green tea, to guests at Kitano Tenmangu Shrine, in Kyoto, Japan

This is a perfect photo of a Maiko. Notice how everyone she's walking towards has stopped to look at her! That's what a striking sight these ladies are. Also notice: long obi, hair ornaments, high shoes, all hallmarks of the Maiko.
