“Enjoy the Silence” by Depeche Mode

Violator (1990)

November 2009: Geiko Tsuneyū (Shigenoya Okiya) of Gion Higashi dancing during the 52nd Gion Odori.

Tsuneyū -san had her Erikae in the early late 19990s and is still active. Although pictures of her are very rare, she is very famous and an accomplished dancer.

In the Gion Odori, she usually has a very important role, if not the main role.

In 2013, she even opened her own bar in Gion Higashi, and is still active as a Geiko at the same time, what an inspirational woman!
