Aisatsu

This blog is for family and friends, to share my feelings and photos with and for myself, to support my fading memory and improve my Japanese. I intend to do some writing in kanji, but am not getting very far without a Japanese computer. So for the moment I say "konnichi wa". Aisatsu dake - just saying hello.

Geisha

It's not often we get a chance to see these ladies walking around town, but when the Plum is in bloom in Dazaifu you might get lucky


 At Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine, with the legendary Tobiume Plum in the back






















Not only Geisha dress up in kimono, it is quite a touristy thing, popular among people from other Asian countries







The ladies on their way to the Kyushu National Museum for a spring performance.
Japan is full of extremes where traditional dress and futuristic architecture coexist.
