Kyoto Pontocho Maiko

pontocho maiko先斗町舞子いちらく

Seated amidst well wishers and tourists, the maiko (now geisha? this photo was taken about two years ago) known as Ichiraku is serene and lovely.

She is resting near the Kaburenjo Theater on Pontocho, a narrow and glorious alley in downtown Kyoto.

Along this street are many of Kyoto's famed tea houses.

If you are invited to enjoy an evening in one such establishment - by a known regular - you may have the chance to meet Ichiraku-san.
