Silk Tour of Japan

For all my friends who are off to Japan tomorrow on Glennis' Silk Tour I wish you a wonderful trip and wanted to share this picture.  |It was this week's Big Picture winner in the |Daily Telegraph and is by Robert Allen of York, North Yorkshire.  It's of a maiko (apprentice geisha) en route to a cherry blossom festival in Kyoto, Japan.  Just look at those wonderful kanzashi in her hair.

  1. Never heard of that tour. I wonder what they will see and where they will go. I have a tray of silkworm eggs I'm hoping will hatch before long.


I really appreciate your lovely comments, ideas and opinions, they make my day. Thank you for visiting Piece'n'Peace,
hugs, Lis x
