"That’s it! Let's go to Kyoto"
I was invited by the Japan Railway Tokai Campaign and I
have been taking pictures maiko in Gion area for about 15
years since I visited Kyoto every season.
The beginning was because I was rather attracted by the
process leading to it and the casual works and behaviors of
Maiko’s daily life, than the perfect appearance in the stage and
To feel the beauty in shape, sound, scent, emotion is a great
pleasure in life (E · A · Poe "The Poetic Principle"). Beautiful
maiko wearing and realizing those aesthetic elements through
hard training and practice is a longing admirer who is
fascinated by both men and women, and it is said to be a part
of Japanese entertainment culture and to succeed it Is not it?
