70820-0003 - Geisha


Kyoto Meiji 1890s Yuji Isawa

Several geisha are relaxing at the noryo yuka (summer platform) of a restaurant in Kyoto.

This photo appears to have been taken at Shijo Ohashi, on the western side of the Kamogawa. The woman in the light kimono is pouring sake, while the two women on the right are playing Jan-ken-pon (known in English as Rock-paper-scissors). Two Andon lamps have been placed on the matted floor.

Photo by Yuji Isawa (伊澤雄司), editor of the Shashin Sowa (冩真叢話). See blog entry.
