Geisha Photographers on Flickr: Onihide

There are a lot of great photographers out there who take the time and effort to put up their work on Flickr and share with others, and a few of them post shots of authentic geisha in Kyoto. A big thank you to all of them!

While I'll mention others as the blog goes along, today I'd like to introduce Onihide, who not only takes lovely shots but gives us information about the photos and, for truly hardcore fans, the names of the maiko (apprentice geisha) or geisha shown. Whether you're looking for artistic inspiration or just want pretty photos to look at, check his work out!

(He also allows his photos to be saved for personal use, which is a nice touch, and has a blog in Japanese for anyone out there practicing the language.)
