cherry blossom Day 9 of my Japan Sakura Trip cherry blossom

A Maiko evening at the Yubasen restaurant in Kyoto.
Her name was Kanona-san.

With a private shuttle bus we drove to the traditional japanese restaurant. It looked very exquisite
and we had a whole room for ourselves. Delicious Kyoto cuisine, Shabu Shabu, thinly sliced meat
and vegetables boiled in a pot on the table. The ingredients were stirred in the cooking pot and were
served with dipping sauces. The fresh vegetables smelled like pure nature. A little dessert was the
perfect finish for this exquisite dinner. :nyanto:

After this meal the Maiko Kanona-san and Geiko Toyohisa-san appeared. This was a very impressing,
kind of illuminating moment. The Maiko was a sakura in her whole appearance. One of the moments
in my life where I was simply speechless. After the introduction Kanona-san showed us two typical
Kyoto dances. Such elegant and pure performances, which were telling a story you really could see.

Every detail of the kimono had a meaning, the kanzashi (hair accessory), the obi (belt), the colour of
the kimono, the length of the sleeves, the colour of the lips... and her hair was actually her own hair.

At the end we played a game called Konpira Fune Fune. I was the first to play and it was quite funny,
but you have to concentrate which is not that easy when you're under the influence of alcohol. :D (Big Grin) 
After about one hour we took pictures with the two and said okinii (thank you).

If you're ever in Kyoto I really recommend booking a Maiko/Geiko performance.
Unique. Traditional. Artists.
Geisha Kiku
The latest news I have from Kanona-san is, that she unfortunately quit in August 2016. sad She would have
been a wonderful artist, but it seems for this profession you have to have a deep dedication and passion.
