I think I was in search for ‘geta’ when I stumbled upon Okinawa Soba’s amazing photo collection from old Japan provided as scans on Flickr. Among thousands of pictures was this one of a beautiful oiran walking on a pair of truely stunning geta, and her little kamuro ‘servant-girls’. Each of the collector’s photos has a detailed (and highly sarcastic) caption on what is depicted, so browse his photostream to learn more about the culture and society of Edo and Meiji Japan.
