Thank you for this Melissa! I've been dying to know her name. ^-^ I thought it was Shinaju.
I just wanted to say that I found your blog the other day when I was looking for information on Kyoto. It's because I've just returned from there and wanted to get accurate information for my photos I just uploaded to flickr. Anyways, I'm loving reading your posts and seeing the photos. I'm working my way through them.I do have a few recent photos of some of the maiko that I took while in Gion. I'm sure you are busy but if you get a chance to look, and recognize anyone, I would so appreciate knowing who they are!http://flickr.com/photos/blukat/sets/72157602890198286/Thanks again and I look forward to seeing more of your posts.Julie
Hi Melissa! I really enjoy reading your blog and seeing all your lovely pictures of Maiko and Geiko. I'd like to travel to Kyoto one day, and every time I see your pictures I remember to keep saving money for the trip! ^_^(Also, the link above is inaccurate. I did some poking around and I came up with this, which should lead you in the right direction, if you want to look at her photos: http://flickr.com/photos/blukat/sets/72157602890198286/ )
really adorable! ;) both of you :3and what a smile you have... i think everybody has a smile like that when they are close to a maiko :Dsara
You lucky girl! It looks like it's getting warmer there in Kyotes, eh?By the way, I like your shirt! ^_<Have fun this week!
I was going to say nice shirt too! I gotta say, Shinaju's heels look deadly. I have no idea how they learn to walk in those shoes.
Oh, how I wish I were you right now! You look like you're in heaven, enjoy Kyoto while you can :-).
Andrew: Doitashimashite: Don't mention it. It's my pleasure!Julie: Ookini! It sounds like you had a great experience in Kyoto. I'd be glad to help, but the links you've sent don't seem to work... Molly: I hope you do get to visit Kyoto someday! My pictures are nothing compared to experiencing it in real life. You won't be disappointed. It will be worth it, I promise!I'll give that link a try! Cheers!Sara: Hehehe... Not everyone! Some people manage to control their dorkiness just long enough to look normal. I, on the other hand, have embraced it- become one with it. In other words, I have no such hope (^_<)Abbey: I wish you were still here!Alyson: Come on now! You lived in Japan for two years! Haven't you seen Japanese girls climbing mountains in 9 inchi stillhettos? Shinaju's got it easy! (^_<)Inge: Kyoto is my happy place! Now if only I could t pull myself away just long enough to get down to Kyushuu...I see Fukoka Now everywhere, by the way!

Dear Melissa, Did you ask her name? I'm sure you spoke to her right?Because I somewhat believe, and have for awhile, that she is the Pontocho maiko Ichiharu.http://image.blog.livedoor.jp/sakutyan7/imgs/9/2/920b0c8f.JPGFrom left to right : Ichiemi, Momijyu, Ichifuku, Ichiharu and Ayano.And Shinaju: http://www.flickr.com/photos/yocca/2437685183/in/set-282444/
Andrew: Yeah, looks like you're right... Again!(^_<) I just got back from Pontocho's Kamogawa Odori, and this is Ichiharu. I must have confused them, since Shinaju was there, too...Gomen,ne!
