Kimika strikes a pose during a peice entitled "Colorful Scenes of Kyoto," showing off the breath-taking yuzen design on the long, flowing sleeves of her kimono. Kimika is a young maiko, or apprentice geiko, in Miyagawa-cho, one of Kyoto's Gohanamachi (literally 5 Flower Towns), or geiko entertainment districts. (57th Annual Kyo Odori).

Waw, that looks amazing :-). I'm very jealous as I would have loved to see some Spring Dances myself! Have to wait until next year...

You know, Kimika looks so much like her sister Kimiharu, I often mistake one for the other... Anyways, Kimika kinda reminds me of Mineko Iwasaki, 'coz there're some angles of her that really (and I mean really) resemble Mineko. Nice shot!
