gion

I have been meaning to make this post for ages now. Gion, Kyoto's old Geisha district, is one of the loveliest neighborhoods. It's hard not to feel a sort of reverence for the place, especially when walking through at twilight, when the lanterns are lit and geisha emerge from their okiya after first having sparks struck across their backs for good luck.
