Our かっこいい lesson for today is all about the basic differences between a maiko (geisha in training) and a geisha. ~ ✿

Geisha are generally simpler and more mature in appearance as compared to maiko (which is also true in ceremonies and special events, in which even though geisha are dressed more extravagantly than usual, their maturity and elegance still shows through). Maiko are often seen as a more youthful and more fun, almost childlike, version of a geisha. (◡‿◡✿)
