September Kitsuke

Its Autumn outside your window? The cold autumn wind reminds you of the end of summer? Than come to Miyagawacho Hanamachi, as in Japan, September is last summer month :)


Geiko Kikuyu


 For this last summer month, geiko Kikuyu has chosen amazing black susohiki, with scenery painted on her hem - we can see waves of water flowing on the shore where magnificent trees grow. Near this beauty, the symbol of Japan - crane - is walking gracefully, reminding us about the coming autumn

Sr Maiko Kikutsuru

Sr Maiko Kikutsuru decided to wear a beautiful hikizuri with gradation between yellow, red and purple with summer grass and bellflower motifs.(P.S. when i was younger, perhaps minarai, i thought that those were not bellflowers but autumn leaves. I dont know why giggle)

Jr Maiko KIkumaru

 Jr Maiko Kikumaru is wearing cute hikizuri with soft green background and maple leafs and branches. We can see green leafs of summer, but there're also yellow leafs of autumn - this is kind of reminder for us that autumn is around the corner, so we need to prepare  as well as enjoy those last days of summer days :)
