A visit to Gion, the traditional neighborhood of Kyoto is always high on most everyone’s list as it’s one of the best places to spot real Geishas, or Geikos, (Kyoto), or Geikos in training, Maikos. But how do you tell the difference between a real Geiko and a tourist in a kimono on a cultural experience tour?
