People from all over Japan and the rest of the world come to Kyoto to enjoy springtime and Sakura festivities. It is a bustling scene steeped in the rich traditions of Japan. We captured this photo of a young girl dressed as a geisha wandering the crowded streets of Higashiyama, Kyoto's historic temple district.

Location: Kyoto, Japan
