    Consideration for the Maiko/Geiko

    Kindly be respectful and considerate when photographing Geiko and Maiko if you encounter them in Kyoto. Please remember to keep a distance and avoid interrupting their daily lives. We recommend using a longer lens, giving them space, and if they come close, stepping out of their path and offering a smile, a quick bow, and a thank you.

Note: The timings may differ based on the selected timeslot
