  6. Beautiful shots. I just read Memoirs of a Geisha the other day, so it was fun to see these pictures!

  7. Thanks to the PhotoHunters for stopping by!

    Flo - I don't think I'd want to do that either, but they're beautiful to see, and watch perform.

    Nymeth - I think you'd have a lot of fun. :)

    Trish - I'd love to go again sometime. I wish I lived closer to Kyoto!

    Kim L - Nice timing! This was the spring dance performance in Gion, just like Sayuri took part in in the book. :)
