Wisteria Kanzashi

"Seiryu-en" is a beautiful Japanese garden in Nijou-Castle,Kyoto.
This garden is relatively new garden,which is made about 40 years ago.(Usually not open to the public)
Today maiko and geiko came to this garden for annual photography event.
 Hope you'll enjoy these photos.
Her kanzashi is iris,because it is suitable flower in May.
Light blue and green are also suitable refreshing colours in this season.
She wears wisteria kanzashi.It is also suitable in this season.
To be continued to next post....
Next update is June 1.(in the plan)
Please have a nice weekend.
