Photographer's Note

This is "Oiran", which is very difficult to explain in English, but so-cold "very high class call girl in japan around 150 years ago" something like that. Around this ares (shinagawa - Tokyo down town) there were many "red-light district" once upon a time. So there were many "oiran" there. So each annual shrine festival, some procession for "Oiran"(this day 7 ladies participated) was performed. And yesterday's small girls are escort for these "Oiran". This precession starts from 19:30 and very much crowded by specters and photographer, so it was very very difficult to take photos, it is regrettable for me but this was best.
