Guessing time! Do you know who I met today?
Gion Kobu geiko san and two maiko san... ☺️ (find the names in hashtags)
Geiko: short “taiko style” obi, short kimono sleeves, mature kimono patterns, “katsura” (wig) on the head 🌟
Maiko: long “darari style” obi with the family crest, long sleeves, kimono with tucks and cute patterns, hairstyle using own hair (usually “wareshinobu” for junior maiko and “ofuku” for senior maiko), flower hair ornaments. During the first year of apprenticeship, maiko color red only the lower lip and wear long dangling flower accessories in their hair! 🌺💖
