Shigyoshiki weekend

As part of the new year items, Little Yoshiwara okiya will be having our own Shigyoshiki.

Shigyoshiki is an annual traditional opening ceremony in Kyoto Geisha Hanamachi, marking the start of another year. Geiko and Maiko gather at their hanamachi theatre wearing formal black kimono and renew their vows for the new year. This is one of the few occasions when all of them are gathered together and presents a rare photo opportunity!

Geisha Yoneyu is asking for the whole okiya to vote on 2 items:
Best Geisha
Best all round member of the okiya (maiko or geisha or okasan)
We all have to vote by the 1st of the new year.
