Along the streets of Kyoto, the kimono-clad woman caught my Western eye. Don't usually see such along the beaches of Bradenton, Florida. A Geisha in training, perhaps? Don't really know.

But in a bow to modern ways, this young woman was clearly tech-savvy. Her adept handling of her smart phone spoke of horizons far more broad than exotic dress, beautiful tea ceremonies and ancient ways might suggest...

Great sighting ... and timing to catch the cyclist in your shot.
I like the many contrasts in this image.

This is a fine street shot of this young woman in the traditional dress showing how she is also modern in outlook. Thanks for watching my blog.

A beautiful shot of the lady. Many of the latest tech items are released in Japan before we ever see them here.
