hey 'liss, it's christopher.
just stopped by to see what's new and say hi. about that maiko, isn't the kyo odori in gion or is it called by another name? I must have them mistaken in my mind 'cause I was wonderin what a girl from miyagawa cho would be doin in another district's dance.

Oh brother, Thou art confused greatly. Fukunami is from Miyagawa-cho, hence her appearance Miyagawa-cho`s dance, the Kyo Odori. Gion`s dance is called Miyako Odori. Confusing it is. Both Miyagawa-cho and Gion are in Kyoto, but they are separate districts.
