Weekend Update 25/6
Not much happened last week so there was no update. This week has witnessed many events though!
-Makino (真希乃) of Okaai (岡あい) in Gion Kobu has left the profession today (June 25th).
-The 24th Miyako No Nigiwai took place yesterday (the 24th) and today (the 25th).
-Next Friday (July 7th) will be Miyabi Kai (みやび会) in Gion Kobu, so there should be some lovely group shots of all active maiko and geiko.
-The Random Fact of The Week looked at Miyako No Nigiwai selections and pets.
-Mylo’s Pick of The Week went to Tomitae (富多愛) of Tomikiku (富菊) in Gion Higashi.
-There’s a new tab at the top of the blog now… ^^
-Some of the highlighted questions this week looked at the dances and outfits of those who are taking part in the hanagasa junko, a clarification on the status of Eitarō, Chinese influences on Japanese culture, Kyoto natives, and how Western people began to have negative views regarding geisha.
-On that note, thank you everyone who has sent in their questions! There’s one that I still have in my queue that’s been there for about a week now, but I’m still trying to find the answer to it. So, please know that I’m trying to get you the answers that you’re looking for ^^
