Geisha hunting in Kyoto: 7 things to know before going to Gion  2


寻找艺妓芳踪:去祗园前必须了解的7件事


2. Timing is everything

时机就是一切

Most geiko who live inKyoto's hanamachi (geisha neighborhoods) head out at about 5:45 p.m. to their evening engagements, which makes this the best time to see them.

多数艺人住在京都的花见小路(与艺妓为邻),她们下午5点45分就出门前往晚会工作了。想见她们,这是最佳时机。


"For good photo results, one should look at the background behind the geisha," says Lugasi, himself an avid geisha photographer.

"People tend to concentrate on the geisha and forget about the background, which can affect any shot."

艺妓摄影狂热爱好者Lugasi说“要拍出上乘的照片,要看艺妓所处的背景。人们通常会聚焦在艺妓身上而忘记其所处的背景,这会影响照片的效果。”

Gion, with its many traditional machiya buildings, is probably the most popular place for photographing geisha inJapan.

祗园里建了许多传统的町屋,可以说是日本最受欢迎的艺妓拍摄地。

Its two hanamachi -- Gion Higashi and Gion Kobu -- are by far the biggest and most famous out of the five geiko areas of Kyoto, the others being Kamishichiken, Pontocho and Miyagawacho.

两条花见小路——祗园东和祗园甲部,和上七轩茶座、先斗町,宫川町是目前京都最大最出名的五大舞妓区,

"It also has beautiful preserved architecture, which gives the feeling of howKyotoused to look in the past, so it's very photogenic," adds Lugasi.

“你可以通过祗园内保存完好,美轮美奂的建筑感受京都的旧貌,因此非常适合拍照留念。”Lugasi 补充道。

3.    Difference is in the details

细节上的差异


All geisha attend a special school throughout their careers, where they go through rigorous training in traditional Japanese arts, such as tea ceremony, flower arrangement and various musical instruments.

贯穿整个事业生涯,所有的艺妓都在一所特殊学校学习。她们必须在学校接受严格的传统日本艺术的培训,例如茶道,插花和各种乐器。

But a maiko apprentice needs to study for at least five years before she's considered skilled and mature enough to become a full-fledged geiko.

但是一个舞妓新手至少需要学习5年后才会成为一名为人认可的技艺纯熟,经验丰富的全能艺妓。

So how do you tell the difference between the two?

所以说,你要怎么区分两者呢?

"There are two easy ways to distinguish between maiko and geisha," says Lugasi.

Lugasi说:“有两个简单的方法去区分舞妓和艺妓。”

"Maiko will have decorations like flowers in her hair, which geiko will not.

舞妓会戴一些头饰,例如花朵而艺妓不会。”

"From behind, the maiko's obi (kimono belt) is long and stretches down almost to the floor while the geiko's obi is folded into a square shape on her back."

“从后面看,舞妓的和服腰带是长及地板的而艺妓的腰带则是叠成一个正方形系在背后的。

Also, Lugasi says maiko will sometimes wear high platform wooden okobo (slippers) while geiko will always wear flat ones, called zori.

“还有,舞妓有时候会穿厚底的木屐(拖鞋)而艺妓常常穿平底的木屐,叫草履


4.    It's OK to dress like a geisha, even the Japanese do it

你可以打扮成艺妓,甚至日本人也会这么做

After seeing the beautiful, graceful geisha in action, many tourists want to get in on the action.

亲身领略了艺妓的风韵和优雅,很多游客会想尝试体验一番做艺妓的滋味。

And plenty do.

要做的事情很多。

On a visit to Kyoto prefecture's Sagano bamboo forest, several women could be spotted walking around in kimonos, some in full makeup.

到京都县嵯峨野竹林游览,你会看见许多穿着和服的女性,一些还化了完整的妆容。

Given the city's history and status as one ofJapan's top centers of traditional culture, some Japanese women we spoke with said it's fun to come toKyototo get dressed up in the traditional Japanese style.

考虑到京都的历史和地位堪称日本传统文化核心和最高点,一些受访的日本女性说到,来到京都这里,打扮成传统日本女子的风格十分有趣。

A few studios in Kyoto will even give tourists full geisha and maiko makeovers, also setting them up with a photographer to follow them through the streets of Gion to snap a few glamor shots.

For example, Aya Studio in Gion offers a variety of packages ranging in price from 12,340- 28,790 yen ($121-283), depending on how many photographs you want taken.


京都一些影楼甚至会提供全套的艺妓和舞妓的服饰打扮供游客选择,并派一个摄影师跟随她们走遍祗园街道,用镜头记录下一些迷人的瞬间,好比祗园的Aya影楼,就能提供多种拍照套餐,价格在12,340到28,790日元(121-283美金),具体取决于你要拍多少张。

The full experience at Maiko Henshin costs 40,000 yen ($394) and includes photos in a garden, studio, tea room and rickshaw. This one lasts about four hours.

舞妓换装的全套体验服务花费40,000日元(394美元),其中包括花园,影楼,茶屋和三轮车这几个场景,拍摄时间约持续4小时。
