CDV of a maiko, framed in what probably was once a lid on a box.
A maiko was a geisha in training.
She has a specific hair piece, a light dress, and make-up on.
The bow on her back (darari obi) was worn by senior maikos.
A maiko was the first stage, next she would've become a geiko, and finally a geisha.
