"Chiyoha (the name of the famous Tokyo geisha Teruha during the brief time that she was an Osaka maiko. She is wearing a darari obi, which is unusual for an Osaka maiko. I think that she must be dressed for an odori, especially as her obi-jime has an ichimatsu (chequerboard) pattern usually associated with dance or Kabuki." About 1910’s, Japan. 2nd and 3rd line of text via Blue Ruin 1 of Flickr.
