Maiko Toshiyui とし結

Portrait of Maiko Toshiyui
Kyoto, June 2010

Like Maiko Tanewaka, Toshiyui-san is a Maiko of Miyagawa-cho (宮川町) Hanamachi. I had the chance to take this lovely portrait after she performed Gion-Ko-Uta dance below :

I also saw  her (below picture) performing a dance at Yasaka shrine in March 2010 during Higashiyama Hanatouro : http://www.hanatouro.jp/e/index.html

And before that, I bumped into her in Gion one year before, where actually she looked much younger...
