Geisha and Maiko from the  Gion Kobu area were out and about in their summer yukata robes decorated with morning glories on July 4

At Yasaka Shrine the ladies were taking part in the "Osendo" ceremony to pray for good health during summer.

With Gion Matsuri festival approaching its climax on July 17, the event calendar is full for the women.

In spite of that, as one maiko said, nothing is more important than health.
