Wish You Were here - Kyoto

Kyoto is my favourite place in the world to holiday, we went about 22 times in our three years in Japan. This photo captures what I most love about the city – an uncomfortable but captivating mix of the old world and the new.

Kyoto is an ugly city that is full of the most wonderful secrets , the best of all these of course being the mysterious world of the Geisha. This photo is taken at the annual Maiko dance which is held in Spring. Before the dance those who have paid for a premium ticket can mix with the Maiko in a garden of Cherry Blossoms in full bloom. Gorgeously decorated Maiko politely accept the gaze of suited middle aged men and gawking tourists alike before performing beautiful traditional dances.
