Obake Ozashiki in Hanahusa ochaya

“Obake” is like Japanese Halloween. This custom is now confined mainly to the geisha districts, where geisha go from tea house to tea house and perform a skit while dressed in outrageous costumes. One of the rules of Obake is that things are topsy-turvey. Old dress as young, men dress and women and vice-versa.
This years obake ozashiki in Miyagawacho was themed with a magic story about a kitsune and old but wise lady^
Shamisen - Geiko Kikuyu
Old Lady - Maiko Kikutsuru
Kitsune - Maiko Kikumaru
