Geiko Mameharu during Hassaku 2012 by TAMAYURA on Flickr. Click here for more.
Mameharu is now retired.
Hassaku is celebrated on 1st August every year. Maiko and geiko take rounds in their district to thank their teachers and protectors. It is usually very hot in Kyoto but in Gion Kobu maiko and geiko need to wear heavy black formal kimono and full oshiroi (white stage) makeup. They look beautiful but this is probably not very comfortable.
