Hi sbk --

Those two women in the middle pic: were they professional geisha, do you reckon? Had read that the majority of professional geisha are now on the old side but those look (relatively) young still!

hi ytsl,

I think these two are Maiko (apprentice geisha) as we were told geisha aren't usually seen outside walking around. Maiko are usually 15-20 yrs old...
