tour guide: Kyoto is the only place you can find micosan- basically an apprentice of geiko-san

Reasons for becoming Geiko san and Maiko San:

Past- girls were sold for the family to get the money

Present- girls may not excel in sch, girls like dancing, relieve family situation (boarding sch will cover all expenses)

Maiko san earns money from different tea house and give money to the boarding houses. Kimonos are pass down to younger ones and it is $1 million.

Maiko san only exist in Kyoto. There are Geisha districts in nagara and tokyo.

In Nara, the one and only Geiko san is rebuilding the district.

First year Maiko san has hair accessories dangling at the side. Second/third year Maiko san will have hair accessories at the top.

During Meiji Restoration, everyone gave up the box pillow and hair styles.

Only Maiko san and Geisha San has the hairstyle and box pillow (that helps to hold the hair). They change the hair 1 in 5 days during summer.

Painted the face white so that pple cannot recognise them.

Kimonos has 4-5 layers. They have 2m long belt. The girl cannot tie by herself. She needs a kimono dresser who is a monk to dress her in 10 mins.

guide: in japan we say agrigato for thank you, but in kyoto you say ohino.
sam: osaka
