A maiko is an apprentice geisha in Kyoto and Western Japan. Their jobs consist of performing songs, dances, and playing the shamisen or other traditional Japanese instruments for visitors during ozashiki. Maiko are usually aged 15 to 20 years old and become geiko after learning how to dance the traditional dances, play the shamisen, and learning Kyō-kotoba (dialect of Kyoto), regardless of their origins.

Daigo-ji (醍醐寺 Daigo-ji) is a Shingon Buddhist temple in Fushimi-ku, Kyoto, Japan. Rigen-daishi (Shōbō) founded the temple in 874, the early Heian period.

After having fallen ill and abdicated in 930, Emperor Daigo entered Buddhist priesthood at this temple. As a monk, he took the Buddhist name Hō-kongō; and shortly thereafter, died at the age of 46. He was buried in the temple, which is why his posthumous name was Daigo.

As part of the "Historic Monuments of Ancient Kyoto", it is designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Please do not use this image in any media without my permission. © All rights reserved.
