January 15th, 2020. I am currently not in Japan and I have just heard about Maiko Kimisaki retirement!  What a surprise – I really didn’t see this coming. Or maybe, because of the recent wave of misedashi and new maiko, I just wasn’t thinking about anything like this.

I had the pleasure and privilege of four different photoshoots with maiko Kimisaki. I’m presenting here what I think are the best images I was able to capture of her.

I wish Kimisaki san the best in her new life. I will miss her.
