Kyoto: The Geisha TownHistorical Japanese cities like Kyoto, the former imperial capital, are famous for their temples and palaces. But in recent years, they have attracted growing throngs of tourists eager to observe the maiko and geisha, professional entertainers who, with their elaborate dresses, white-painted faces and stylized gestures, exercise a special allure for men's imaginations as the seeming embodiment of Japanese tradition.
