September was the last performance of Maiko Tanewaka at Kokusai Hotel. Over the summer, Maiko from Miyagawacho performed dances every week-end as an event to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the hotel. It's very near my home and I could attend almost every performances. Tanewaka san was surprised to see me every time and finally step by step got used to this unusual face. I am so grateful to her for her patience and kindness. The last session was wonderful. Almost nobody went there (apart from her fans!) and we could talk and laugh while taking pictures.
