Looking for Geishas in Kyoto

Kyoto is known for having a small population of Geishas.  During our four hour self-guided speed tour of Kyoto we were on the look-out for them.  We were continually amazed at the beauty of Kyoto -- due to very little bombing during the war, many of the old buildings are still standing and the entire city is surrounded by green hills.  Lovely.

A gift from China ... bad air quality due to desert dust.

Not sure why all of these stones were wearing aprons?  Jason thought, maybe a chef burial ground?

Prayer wheels.

I was excited to see these girls that were dressed up as Geishas.  Looks like a pretty intensive process!

Although we didn't spot any real Geishas, we did find some great sashimi for Jason!

Lovely indeed! Those aprons are hysterical and that pic of you in the tiny doorway...classic!
