Traditional OKINAWA(RYUKYU) costume, Japan - I still have a doll dressed very much like this.

This picture is marked 'maiko, Kyoto Japan' but this lady's nagajuban is completely white, which would usually mark her as a Geisha rather than an apprentice Maiko.

Maiko in blue. the red color around the eyes and eyebrows is also youthful. As the women get older the red starts lessen and eventually be left out completely.
