JAPAN PHOTOS by Philbert Ono

Pair of Geisha, autographed. One of my most treasured cards. This card was signed (on the chest area) by these two geisha with a fountain pen. Several other geisha also signed the back of the card. (See the next image.)

What's the difference between Geisha and Maiko? Have you ever heard of Yujo from Edo/Old Japan? Do you know if they cioncide?

korewa, kawaii to subarashi desu...Mr. Ono, thank you sincerely, for allowing to save this image. This is one of the most beautiful images I have seen in my life of geisha pictures. I will also keep it as a treasure. Arigatou gozaimasu, Ono-san. D.

A maiko is an apprentice geisha. Yuujo, if I'm not mistaken is the term for a woman of pleasure or prostitute. Geisha were not Yuujo.
