Dress ≪ Start from ‘Wareshinobu’ ≫

Hello this is Myako.

Kitano Odori(Kitano dance performance) by Kamishichiken will be held in next month.And all hanamachi,except Gion higashi, will have Spring dance performance in next month as well.

Before having spring dance performance, there are ‘Omisedashi’(Maiko-debut) and ‘Erikae’(Geiko-debut) in February and March.

The photo below was taken on ‘Omisedashi’day and Maiko who is on left put ‘Wareshinobu’hair style. Kanzashi she wore is made by Bekkou(Tortoise shell)and  has been inherited from generation at the Okiya.She looks so fresh and excited.. it make us feel excited too!

And the right side, she is Maiko and will be Geiko in about 10days.Her hair sytle is called ‘Sakkou’ and Maiko put hair that way only for 10days-14days before ‘Erikae’. Since Geiko put on wig, this is the last time to use their own hair.

She looks like having hard determination being Giko,feeling relief ,sad and more… also she must be proud of herself..looks like having so complicated feeling.

Young girls enter to Hanamachi and start working as ‘Shikomisan’to be a ‘Maiko’…but not everyone could be Maiko. There are some girls give up to be a Maiko and just leave Hanamachi…

And also not everyone could be a ‘Geiko’ even thought they become Maiko. Everyone who finally put up ‘Sakkou’ hair style came through really hard way. They cried many times and made so much effort for being Geiko.

They tried hard to follow their teacher, mom of Okiya, and seniors..

Please look forward to see fresh Maiko and Geiko at Spring dance performance and tea ceremonies!
Keep going, Maiko and Geiko!

Thank you,
