I was in awe!

This was a wonderful event! We met a real-life Geisha/Geiko and it was such a treat! The intro and background information provided by our hosts, Danny and Kez, set the stage for our meeting with Umeha San, our Geisha. When she arrived we were ALL IN AWE! Such a beautiful and mesmerizing sight to behold! We had a full hour to ask her questions and then we walked to the Temple of Knowledge and Literacy to take photos. We all felt like VIP who were doubling as bodyguards for Umeha San. When we returned, she was gracious enough to perform two dances for us! It was wonderful and I highly recommend this local experience!
