KyotoTown ≪ Brochure of Odori(Dance performance) ≫

Hello this is Myako.

Each year it is time for Odori(Dance performance)season,’Odori Brochure ‘are sold by each Hanamachi

There are many highlighted photos and the explanation of each programs of the year in the brochure.
So you could enjoy the performance more if you read it in advance.

Besides there are all Geiko and Maiko’s photos and name are written under.That is something fans are looking forward to.

Photos are ordered by the date of ‘Omisedashi (Maiko debut)’. Even though girl(A) came to Hanamachi and become ‘Shikomi san’ earlier than girl(B) , Girl(B) sometimes become Maiko earlier than girl(A). In that case girl(B) is called as Senior of girl(A)

For example, there are two Maiko, Maiko(C)and  Maiko(D) and their photos were ordered C and D in brochure. Now if only D had Geiko Debut right after,D was on previous page than Maiko C in next brochure.
Then Maiko C become Geiko later, the order is (C) and (D) again in next brochure.

 
Except a few Geiko or Maiko who not join to Odori performance by some reasons, you could almost figure out when they become Geiko and Maiko by these brochures and you could know who are retired from Hanamachi as well.
Also you could watch their grow as Geiko or Maiko at Brochure..You would know every brochure they are getting better at make-up!

Well… I will tell you something only for here..
Some senior Geiko are using same photo for years and years!

If you are interested in ordering brochure, you could order somehow..
please make inquiry to hanamachi.

Thank you.
