I made these cupcakes for the birthday of my grandmother.
Evening Impression from the Geiko / Geisha quarter Miyagawacho in Kyoto.
During our Stay in Kyoto we spent the evenings walking around the different geisha quarters. It was difficult to get good pictures without flashlight (I did not want to use flashlight because I would have felt like an intruder). But some of the pictures captured the atmosphere quiet well.
Bad for my purse....
As far as I know they were property of Mi - No - Yae Okiya.
I bought these kanzashi:
A big single flower for senior Maiko for January
A complete set for Junior Maiko for March
And two days ago Ichiroya listed some Maiko Hikizuri from Mi - No - Yae. Some of them were worn by Maiko Makino.
I bought the blue dragonfly Hikizuri. Fortunately there are some pictures where Makino is wearing it ^v^
I hope I will finish my travel diary the next weeks. I'm sorry, I was lazy.
