An apprentice geisha (called a maiko) walking in full regalia through the streets of the Gion geisha district.
Very nice capture.

To my eyes this is unbelievably beautiful ... and would this maiko be walking to 'work'?

@Judy aka L@dybug: Thank you. This is beautiful to me, too! Yes, she is on her way to a teahouse. This is why she is in the most elaborate kimono, hair ornaments and the white makeup. When she is just out on the town she will wear a much less formal kimono and no white makeup. Yesterday's photo was actually of a maiko in the Gion district in her "everyday" clothes.

SHE looks like a Flower walking along this rather sober styled street! A wonderful capture!
