Immerse yourself in the world of Geisha, the world of the Maiko...the Karyukai.
Karyukai is a term used to describe the Geisha-world and means "The flower and willow world". To be a Maiko, "a dancing child," you must first train for 5 years, and can only begin once you've completed 9 mandatory years of Japanese school. They train in dancing, singing, music and the tea ceremony. They learn the makeup, the dress, the hairstyles and the ornaments...it's not an easy undertaking, but the results are stunningly beautiful art and confident, dedicated women.
Here you will find 12 various makeup options for the Maiko. Some of them are more traditional, some are hybrid and Kabuki influenced, but all of them are stunning...
So enter The Flower and the Willow World and see where your dreams take you today!
