The GEISHA Exhibition in Leiden

Geisha Exhibition: Kimono on show

GEISHA Exhibition in Leiden

The new Geisha exhibition at the Rijksmuseum Volkenkunde is now on show. I visited the museum last week and blissfully explored the exhibition for a few hours. I posted a video and took lots of photos. Unfortunately, it was pretty much impossible to include all of them in this blogpost alone. Please check out my Flickr page for many more photos!

Kimono Collection

The Geisha exhibition seems to be garnering quite some international attention and I was especially amazed at the sheer amount of kimono the museum managed to put on display. Geisha culture is notoriously mysterious and known to be inaccessible to the general public, so getting to see these items in the Netherlands is an incredible opportunity. If you happen to be in the area, I definitely recommend a visit!
