A geisha going to work

Category: Travel Portraits


Photo and caption by Li Lei

I was able to visit Kyoto and Osaka last spring to see the beautiful cherry blossoms. During our night cherry blossom viewing in Gion, we were able to catch sights of the geishas hurrying from place to place to entertain clients. This is the best and the only good shot to capture her vivid makeup and kimono without flash.

Location: Kyoto, Japan
