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?
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!
