Photo Journal: Maiko message


Two "maiko," or apprentice geisha, drop New Year's cards into a postbox at the Kyoto Central Post Office on Dec. 15, 2016, during a ceremony to mark the first day Japan Post began accepting the traditional greeting cards this year. The maiko -- Satoharu, left, and Kanako -- called on everyone to get their New Year's cards in the post by Dec. 25. (Mainichi)
