Geisha performing Traditional Japanese Dance with Fan - seen in Kyoto in spring. When i visit Japan, will definitely not miss the KABUKI. I think they are the most graceful performers next to the ballet dancers. This fan dance is in my "must watch list"
This houmongi is playing with seasonality– there is a lot of waving grass (summer), blue star-shaped flowers (summer and fall), chrysanthemums at the very bottom, and what appear to be tachibana on the left (orange), along with songbirds and sakura.
