Culture ≪ The White dove sitting on the ear of rice Kanzashi  ≫

Hello this is Myako.

Between 1st of January to 15th,Geiko and Maiko put ‘ear of rice’ Kanzashi on their hair.
If you look them carefully, you could see a little white dove is sitting on the root of the ear of rice.

Originally white dove does not have eyes, but as day goes by dove’s lovely eyes are drawn by someone.
Here is a romantic story regards to ‘Eyes of white Dove’.
It is saying that the wishes come true if someone she likes draw her dove’s eyes.

Mostly Geiko and Maiko already decided someone to ask drawing, however, there are some customers who like teasing.
Even though they are not be asked, they offer to draw eyes. Other customers drew dove all black and change it to crow!
Well, seems like Geiko and Maiko, and customers are enjoying after all.

As a matter of fact,Geiko and Maiko have some new ‘white dove’kanzashi for spare.
And if someone they like draw its eyes.. they keep it preciously.

It is cute girl’s story, isn’t it?
Please keep on going this new year too, Geiko and Maiko!

Thank you,
