This is the same henshin studio photo set as the leaves. It shows an excellent view of the back of the katsuyama (crown/bridge) kanzashi. Also, note that the tama kanzashi is green for summer.
maiko Mamefuji Photographer: Gaap “I know we haven’t spoken in a while but I’d like you to know that maybe one day we’ll find our way. Maybe one day we’ll find a peace for all the harm we’ve caused. Maybe one day if we cross, I’ll remember why I fell so deep into you and I’ll remember how much the sun loved you, enough to follow you and forever leave me in darkness.” Robert Drake
The kanzashi for July is worn for a special event (Gion Matsuri). Every year the design changes, using cool motifs such as uchiwa and sensu, butterflies and flowers.
