KyotoTown Kenban(schedule board)of Gionmachi , Lessons of Geiko and Maiko

Hello This is Myako,

I told you about Yukata-kai of Miyagawacho at Facebook post.
Geiko and Maiko of Miyagawacho are going to Higashiyamajyoshi academy everyday to improve their skill.
Yukata-kai is one of their recital.

I told you about Geiko and Maiko of Gion Kobu are going to Yasaka nyokoba academy as well.

 

I guess many of you think their lesson must be only Dancing and playing instrument(Shamisen).
They have to be able to dance and play shamisen at Ozashiki, but lessons are not only these.

Please take a look of below photo, which is called Kenban(schedule board)of Gion kobu.
Geiko and Maiko had been writing them down since there was not telephone line.
Now days Geiko and Maiko must be using SNS and getting information right away.How convenience it is now.

 
But I still see some Maiko who are writing down the schedule at the begining of the month.
Schedule are all up to teacher so sometimes there are lessons at their day-off,too bad.

Can you see there are many kinds of lessons besides Dancing and Japanese orchestra on the board?
Geiko and Maiko are brushing up their personal skill as a lady of Hanamachi.

You could see their work like flower arrangement and calligraphy at exhibition of April-Miyako-Odori,
Geiko and Maiko are working hard on it since many people come to see.

Look at the board again, now you know
Geiko and Maiko are busy not only evening but also daytime as well!

Thank you.
