Hanamachi of June

Gion Matsuri has been started finally. It means that very busy and tough month has been started for Geiko and Maiko since they has ordinary Ozashiki and Gion Matsuri work.

Maiko put little fan for their Kanzashi and that looks perfect for summer.However the time between Gion matsuri hokodate to Hanagasa junko is excepted.
Junior Maiko’s Kanzashi become much more gorgeous and Senior Maiko put very sepcial hair style ‘Katsuyama’ only in that period.

The photo of Maiko was taken at ‘Yoimiya shinzi hounou’ and  that Kanzashi is very special one for Gion matsuri.
Also Kimono pattern is fireworks and very summerish. Sometimes you could see very special only for a few days Gion matsuri outfit, if you are lucky.

In July, you could see many Geiko and Maiko with Yukata.

Gion Maturi is also called ‘Full month festival’ and there are many regulation in this month.
Please enjoy this month Kyoto!
