Thank you!

The longest wavelength of light that humans can see is red. Like the color of autumn in Japan, like Hinomaru, the “sun disc” on Japanese flag and the torii of Shinto shrines

Japan34 Colors of life1

  1. 1. http://www.authorstream.com/Presentation/michaelasanda-2718077-japan34-colors1/
  2. 2. The second Monday of January is the Coming-of-Age Day, and one of the national holidays
  3. 3. Every city or village holds a ceremony for 20-year-old people
  4. 4. Young people are regarded as “adults” after celebrating this day. They are given the right to vote as citizens for the first time
  5. 5. The ceremonies are generally held in the morning at local city offices throughout Japan
  6. 6. Many women celebrate this day by wearing Furisode, a style of Kimono with long sleeves that hang down, and Zori sandals
  7. 7. Men sometimes also wear traditional dress (e.g. dark kimono with Hakama), but nowadays many men wear formal Western clothes such as a suit and tie more often than the traditional hakama
  8. 8. A furisode ( lit. swinging sleeves) is a style of kimono distinguishable by its long sleeves
  9. 9. Traditional hakama
  10. 10. Tsumami kanzashi are a traditional Japanese form of hair decoration made from folding squares of fabric, similar to origami
  11. 11. Tsumami kanzashi are most often seen adorning the hairstyles of geisha
  12. 12. This style of hair ornament features red shidare, or chains of silk flowers, and silver and gold metallic accents
  13. 13. This kanzashi is mounted on a metal hair prong for wear in updos and ponytails.
  14. 14. A maiko off-duty, dressed in kimono at Gion, Kyoto
  15. 15. Cattleya, graceful lady
  16. 16. The earliest visual depiction of fans in Japan dates back to the 6th century CE, with burial tomb paintings showed drawings of fans
  17. 17. The scarlet-fringed collar of the kimono hangs very loosely in the back to accentuate the nape of the neck, which is considered a primary erotic area in Japanese sexuality
  18. 18. Maiko
  19. 19. Apprentice geisha are called maiko, (literally "dance child") orhangyoku, "half-jewel" (meaning that they are paid half of the wage of a full geisha), or by the more generic term o-shaku, literally "one who pours (alcohol)"
  20. 20. The only modern maiko that can apprentice before the age of eighteen are in Kyoto
  21. 21. Maiko
  22. 22. It is still said that geisha inhabit a separate reality which they call the karyūkai or “the flower and willow world.” Before they disappeared the courtesans were the colorful “flowers” and the geisha the “willows” because of their subtlety, strength, and grace
  23. 23. Geta are a form of traditional Japanese footwear that resemble both clogs and flip-flop. The bottom view, show the “teeth”
  24. 24. Geta clogs mizutori white on black side
  25. 25. Traditional Japanese Footwear
  26. 26. Geiko Literally translating to ‘arts person’, geisha are highly trained in Japanese traditional arts, including music, singing and dancing. By contrast, geiko is primarily used to refer to geisha from Kyoto. Although geisha formerly referred to only those from Tokyo and its surrounding areas, it has now become the general term for all geisha
  27. 27. Maiko Maiko translates to ‘dancing girl’ or ‘child’, and refers to apprentice geiko. They undergo about 5 years of training in various arts, before graduating to become geiko. Outside of Kyoto, the hangyoku in Tokyo would be the closest equivalents to maiko. Hangyoku literally means ‘half jewel’ and are trainee geisha, although little is known about their training process
  28. 28. Geiko versus maiko Kyoto
  29. 29. So summed up, the difference between geiko and maiko can be described as the difference between accomplished “master” of their art and an apprentice
  30. 30. Geiko versus maiko Kyoto
  31. 31. Hair style Geiko versus maiko
  32. 32. Maikos wear several elaborate hair ornaments, or kanzashi, such as fan or ball- shaped ornaments and combs. There is also the hana– kanzashi – an ornament with silk flowers dangling from the maiko’s head to her chin. While this is one of the most recognisable hair ornaments, it is only worn during the first year Minarai stage of a maiko’s training
  33. 33. In contrast, geisha wear simpler ornaments or decorative combs in their hair
  34. 34. Vintage Japanese Hakata Doll Geisha Maiko
  35. 35. Maneki Neko Fortune beckoning cat Japanese people are often asked about the difference between the cat raising a right hand and the one with its left hand raised. It is said that the one with the right hand raised brings economic fortune and the one with the left hand raised brings customers
  36. 36. Maneki Neko Fortune beckoning cat Additionally, the height of the raising hand makes a difference. If the hand is raised overhead, this cat brings big fortune from far away. On the other hand, if the hand is raised lower, the cat brings certainly small fortune close to you
