Day 6 Kyoto,Kyoto!

Yesterday we visited some temples near our hotel, including Kiyomizu Dera. I think it's one of the most famous temple in Kyoto and its picture is often used for postcards. It is really a nice Temple and you have a great view down on Kyoto.

We got there via some beautiful streets with old buildings and many nice small shops which sell japanese pottery, sweets and things for tourists. We also saw two Ghibli Stores.
And we saw some Maiko Henshin- Girls who pay to be dressed up like a Maiko- some pretty good with nice kimono, some less good but all with very nice makeup.

In the evening we walked around Gion and Miyagawacho and saw the following Maiko and Geiko:
Kikushino
Yachiho
Fukuhina
Yukizono

All in normal kimono going to ozashiki

Fukumi
Toshisumi
Toshimomo
Miena
Manaha
Koai
Ichiyuri

All in full kimono makeup and wig

I stilldidn't dare to take a picture but enjoyed the moment as they walked by.
