Secret Moments of Maikos

The Grace, Beauty and Mystery of Apprentice Geishas

Photo. Philippe Marinig

Apprentice Japanese geishas are known as maikos and undergo a rigorous training in the traditional arts of music and dance and the wearing of strictly codified costume and make-up. This photo-essay allows a rare glimpse into the closeted world of the trainees in their traditional house in the Gion quarter of Kyoto.
