There is Kippuiri, small ceremony for praying safety of festival, on 1st of July. After that, Gion festival has been started in Kyoto.
Since Geiko and Maiko are invited to many events,It will be very busy month for them besides Ozashiki.

In early July Maiko put kanzashi of round fan. It is so interesting that fan of junior Maiko’s kanzashi are small and seniors are bigger.
Around the period of Yamahoko no Hokotate,Maiko of Yamahoko Junko changed Kanzashi to colorful and gorgeous fan.

Senior Maiko who usually put their hair like ‘Ofuku’are allowed to changed their hair to ‘Katsuyama’which is very special hair style only for the period.
‘Katsuyama’hair is very charming and sexy.
