maiko-henshin = geisha transformation
Susan and I will be transformed into geisha – – or actually into maiko, apprentice geisha. Sounds fun! We may even be able to take a stroll in our garb through Gion, the geisha district. But for those of you who know both Susan and me, can you imagine us doing this in a reverent fashion!? I think not, but we are sure to have fun! I apologize in advance, maiko-henshin people.
Here’s someone else’s experience w maiko-henshin.
