Another reason to visit (or live in) Kyoto

Not just because of the beautiful scenery, and the lovely feel of traditional Japan - Kyoto's another great place to go, because when the riverside cafes open up for the summer, you just might get a maiko (apprentice geisha) serving you a drink! How cool would that be! There just aren't that many geisha (comparatively speaking) these days, and it's a pretty rare opportunity to see one up close for the general public.

Want to get a glimpse into a geisha's day? Mainichi did a photo journal special on geisha recently, check it out here.
