NEW YEAR 2020

Shimabara, Kyoto.
Once a flourishing Hanamachi District, this neighborhood still retains the charm and allure of when it was a bustling area for locals and travelers alike.

Kyoto is a city famous for its Hanamachi Districts -- areas in which geiko and maiko girls lived and perfected traditional song, dance, and entertainment for customers. Although no longer an active Hanamachi District, Shimabara has now transformed into a neighborhood with hidden treasures and historical gems with every corner you turn.
