This article, I’m gonna show you the Maiko you never saw before in your life – the Pole Dancers Maiko!! lol I believe these cute Malaysian Maiko girls can win your smile of the day. ^^
Love this shot! We were having the idea of putting 3 Maikos at different position with different distance to the camera but just after we took this photo, we realized that the 3 girls turned back to the camera in different directions, which makes the photo natural by coincidence lol
2 Hong Kong tourists saw us on the street and they were almost screaming! They were so excited and asked to take a photo with our 3 Maiko.
Alright everything was a perfect lie, until our Jenniffer suddenly said in Chinese “Press the button to turn the camera on”….
we went to see around the area where the real Maiko works at, hoping that we could bump into some.
The street is called 花見小路 (Hanami Koji), is located at Gion area. Here you can find many restaurants where Maiko works as an entertainer. Unfortunately, they only serve VIP people! Such as big company CEO, politicians, celebrities. But recently there are some Maiko restaurants open for tourists. 🙂
Walking on this street, you should get your camera ready all the time because you never know when you will bump into a real Maiko!
And guess what?! we saw….. 4 real Maikos!! Lucky! (Couldn’t take the photo of the 1st Maiko. She was walking too fast!)
Wow we are too LUCKY!!! Spotted 4 real Maikos in one day! Ayu, Zen, Jenniffer, you know you are just too LUCKY???
If you also want to see Maiko in live, remember to come to Kyoto, 花見小路 (Hanami Koji)! Did you know? Maiko is the only traditional occupation which survived after Meiji restoration in Japan. 150 years ago, we could still see Samurai on the street. But they disappeared after the Meiji restoration, the time when Japan started its modernization.
Only Maiko, who survived! Nowadays we can still see Maiko working in Kyoto. ^^ If you are coming to Kyoto, don’t go back until you get a photo of Maiko ya!
