Toward the Fall Foliage, Winner of the Chushakuin Prize at the 13th PPK Maiko and Momiji Photo Contest

Once again, I am honored to have one of my photos prized (Chishakuin Prize) at the 13th PPK’s Maiko and Momiji Photo Contest. 

Chushakuin Prize


Twice a year, in the Fall and the Spring, the PPK Association (Photo Partner Kyoto) organizes a public photo shoot with several maiko and geiko (geisha). In November 2018, the photo shoot took place in the large and beautiful ChishakuIn Temple located in the Higashiyama district in Kyoto.

This event is becoming more and more popular and it gathered well over 600 participants from all over the country, and even from abroad, in the three separate sessions.

As before, after the shoot, the PPK Association organized a photo contest where over 850 photos were presented for the competition.  You can see all the photos selected for a prize or a mention: (text in Japanese).

These photo shoots are a great opportunity to take photos of maiko and geiko in beautiful locations at a very reasonable cost.
