Dress ≪ Maiko, Junior and Senior… Part1 ≫

Hello this is Myako,

Let me talk about the differences of Maiko and Geiko. At first you would like to know about the difference of Junior and Senior Maiko.

 

Please take a look of photo below..They are same Maiko but can you they are different?
Yes, left is senior and right is junior.

 

So I will tell you what are different exactly.

 

Kanzashi with flower/   Junior ..  Cute little flowers with hanging one.
                       Senior  ..   rather simple big flowers

Hair ornament at front/   Junior..  It is also cute little flower,called ‘Katsuyama’
                         Maiko .. It is not flower but comb.

      
Make up/   Junior(less than 1year being as Maiko) ..  rouge only for lower lip.
          Senior ..  rouge for both lips.

Collar/  Junior ..Red
         Senior .. White

Kimono/  Junior .. there are pattern around shoulders and make her look young and cute.
         Senior.. there is no pattern around shoulders and make her look calm and mature.

Obi(belt) sash/ Junior ..It is thick and has pattern, cute looking.
                Senior .. It is thin, simple style.

 

I could tell you many differences from just only the photo below.
There are more if you see whole style, like color of the clog thong.
