Maiko's Coiffure:Beautiful Ties In Kyoto

Yamanaka Emiko has been setting hair for maiko in Kyoto’s traditional entertainment district for over half a century. The young women who live and train there think of her as their “Grandma in Kyoto.” The COVID pandemic, however, has upended their way of life. Shows have been cancelled, visitors are scarce, and some maiko have made the difficult decision to give up. Listen to the maiko speak about their struggles with Yamanaka, who at 92 has a lifetime of wisdom to offer them.
