2 Maiko (apprentice Geisha) conversing near the Golden Temple in Kyoto, Japan. Parts of the kimono and the special make-up are clearly visible. Typical nape make-up on a maiko (Note the red collar).

A peek inside the main hall of the “Bamboo Palace of Princess Kaguya” (かぐや姫) in Kyoto. It has a statue of princess Kaguya inside. Note the colourful origami on both sides, they are wishes from visitors and are folded into paper cranes.
