A look into a beguiling world that has captivated many an artist.

Maiko, or apprentice geiko (geisha), are a signature part of Kyoto culture. This official catalogue to a 2020 exhibition at the Museum of Kyoto traces the evolution of maiko from their historical beginnings along with geiko to their current status as beloved symbols of the ancient capital. Artworks, films, photographs, and historical sources illustrate maiko culture from the Tokugawa period to the present; from portrayals by nihonga masters to displays of costumes and coiffures, take in the many facets of their bewitching allure.
