Details, Kyoto style

geta

Maiko (geisha in training) wear distinctive tall geta called okobo which are similar to the chopines worn in Venice during the Renaissance. Also very young girls wear okobo, also called “pokkuri” and “koppori”, that have a small bell inside a cavity in the thick “sole”. These geta have no “teeth” but are formed of one piece of wood. The middle part is carved out from below and the front is sloped to accommodate for walking. Pokkuri are usually red in color and are not worn with yukata, but a very fancy kimono (such as at shichi-go-san festivals).
