Hello!
Maybe some of you know me already. I've been around for quite some time now, but somehow I never registered on this forum *shame*.
Maybe you have seen my photo's on flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/frzzzzllll
I'm a member of kimono-de-jack NL and I play 'okaa-san' in our re-enactmentgroup Samurai Events.

I'm looking forward to learn mooooore about the geisha-world on this forum! :)

Hi there! I'm here because of my study to the hanamachi Kamishichiken. I find the hanamachi interesting because it's a relatively small hanamachi even though it's considered to be one of the major three hanamachi of Kyoto. Also, it's said to be the oldest hanamachi, and if you keep that in mind it's interesting to see that it works together with companies like Toyota to promote themselves. If somebody has any recommendation for sources (books, sites, photos) please keep in touch :wink:

I found out! I think. There are five kagai. Three historically served refreshments to visitors to Kitano Tenman-gu (Kamishichiken) and Yasaka-jinja (Gion Kobu, Gion Higashi). The other two kagai of Miyagawacho and Pontocho historically served refreshments to travellers on the major roadways. Fascinating! I wonder what Shimabara's beginning was.
