Hanamachi of June
Kyoto of June is about rainy season,most of days are hot and humid however you could feel refreshing with Maiko’s fresh green willow decorated Kanzashi(hair ornament).
Normally they put seasonal flowers on their Kanzashi which make them beautiful on the other hand,the fresh green make them look adorable.
Also in June Kimono change to Summer style, Hitoe and Ro-belt. You could see Geiko and Maiko lightly walk to Ozasiki.
Spring dance performance has just been completed last month, in June ‘Miyako no Nigiwasi’ will be held at Minamiza.
It is very special performance since Maiko from all Hanamachi dance at the same stage.
Especially last stage ’Gion Kouta’which is performed by number of twenty Maiko,they are selected four Maiko from each hanamachi,is really worth to see.
It is too bad that it is very difficult to get the ticket.It is sold out very quickly every year.
There are many other Geiko and Maiko who wish to see the performance,you could see many Geiko and Maiko at Minamiza in this period.It is very gorgeous looking.
