Maiko (apprentice geishas) dancing in Kyoto

We saw geishas!!!
Whilst we were in Kyoto, there was a special event we went to. Served with cold beer and green beans (yes, that's right, green beans!), we were entertained by Maiko dancers (Maiko are apprentice Geishas just completing their training). 
Wearing fabulous kimonos, extravagent "obi" (the sash that is worn with this), and having the traditional white makeup, these girls looked stunning. 
When they started dancing, their grace and delicate movements were exquisite. They seemed to perfectly represent the sense of unattainable feminine perfection which geishas are known for.
Miranda, this is what "allure" is all about!
