The Gion district of Kyoto is one of the most familiar places to visitors to Japan, and whiles I try to concentrate on posts that are more unfamiliar, because Yoko is from Gion we visit there fairly often to visit family, so sometimes I will post on Familiar Japan.
This little girl was being photographed by her parents last August. Probably not dressed up for Shichigosan as that is not until November.
The chances are she is a student of Nihon Buyo, traditional dance, and has just finished taking part in the annual recital.
