In Gion district in Kyoto, scenes like this can be found. The lady with the umbrella is a maiko, an apprentice geiko. The kimono she wears was not chosen at random. It was a perfect match for the time of the year (autumn). Also notice the way she's walking and her posture. Perfection. Nothing about her was at random. In the geiko world, this one lady is top class. And she is a natural beauty too.
