Hanamachi of October
Chrysanthemum is the October flower of Maiko’s Kanzashi.
There are many kinds of Chrysanthemum, so you could enjoy watching many different chrysanthemum on Maiko’s hair.
They are really symbol of autumn in Kyoto.
Actually chrysanthemum is the flower that has different kinds most.
Geiko and Maiko put ‘Someobi’ during only the period of autumn.
‘Someobi’ is belt of dyed fabrics and it is one of traditional craft in Kyoto,
They wear so many beautiful different patterns Kimono in autumn.
There are Dance performance show at each four Hanamachi so there are many sight seeing people and amateur photographers.
I would understand that you would like to take beautiful Geiko and Maiko as many as you could but please observe the manners and enjoy watching safely
