    ... purpose, to alert the guards to anybody trying to sneak in. That evening we decided on taking an optional walking tour of Gion, an area famous for Geisha. In Kyoto Geisha are called Geiko, and the apprentices are called Meiko. We spotted two Meiko, who quickly hurried into the tea houses or walked by with their umbrella covering their faces.
