We are going to have an exclusive photography workshop of “Maiko in Kyoto” in the very high season of colored leaves at a temple in Kyoto.
With a limited number of participants, you will be able to shoot the closer photos of “Maiko” under the instruction of an eminent professional photographer in Kyoto.
This will be the best memorable opportunity for you in Kyoto with some
Tourists from abroad are also welcome. Don’t miss it !!
“Maiko” are young trainees before becoming full-fledged “Geiko” (Geisha), who are regarded as professional entertainers
with traditional Japanese art forms such as singing, dancing, playing musical instruments, tea ceremony, and flower arrangement.
Instructor: Hiroshi Mizobuchi
Born in 1949. Founded his own photo studio “Buchi” in 1980.
His primary focus was the Kagai (particularly in the Gion district) where Geiko and Maiko live, conserving and respecting their unique culture.
In June 2015, Mizobuchi published his new photo book “The Kagai in Kyoto” as his celebratory publication for his 40th anniversary of his career as a photographer.
