Maiko in Arashiyama, Kyoto, Japan

Japan. Because of the rainy weather, these two new maiko in Miyagawa-cho, Kyoto, had to wear plastic covers over their priceless silk brocade obi on the day of their misedashi (their first day as maiko, when they are presented and introduced to the district with their new professional names). Sanbonashi is the "three-legged" prong of bare skin left unpainted at the nape of the neck only on very special occasions. | flickr via mboogiedown
