Okuyama Hatsuko & her camera, 1920. (Though there are many pictures floating about of this woman, this is the only name I could find for her, and even that seems to be someone’s guess. Most of her pictures are labeled “Maiko Hatsuko,” or apprentice geisha Hatsuko.)
I love her so much, she’s so gorgeous, and her aura is such a great shade of purple. It was my edit done for my sub blog Vintage Geisha. If you love geisha, vintage or not, head on over and check out my blog!
