Did you read my previous article about how to experience Maiko in Kyoto?


Oh gosh, now give yourself a 3 min to read the article and come back here, because I’m gonna show you how we dressed up like a Maiko in video form!
(Hey why can’t I watch this video directly?…Well…..You can too! :p)


Foreigners Can Become a Maiko in Kyoto too! [Make-up part]

It was my first video recording right after I bought my Canon Kiss x6i 4 months ago. I didn’t plan to make it a youtube video at that time, till this video. 😛 I hope you learn something about Japan from my videos. Leave me comments or suggestions and I guarantee you 100% reply. ^^

If you wanna know more about Japanese traditional dancer Maiko, check out below video.

Share with your friends or family if they are interested in Japan too. ^^ Peace!

    This is amazing! Your videos are really something and I’ve loved every
    single one of them so far. Please keep up the good work. Also I think it’s
    great that you always put subtitles so people who understand English,
    Japanese or Chinese can enjoy your videos. ^o^

    Thanks Nocolopa 🙂 It’s my pleasure to receive such compliment. Thanks for
    giving credit to the subtitle! I have put effort into making them and your
    comment just made me feel it worths making 🙂
