I figured out she was a tourist when I approached her because 1. You rarely find the real geishas during the day and 2. Her companion was standing nearby while  she let me take this shot of her. As a matter of fact, the next day I went out for a stroll in Gion at 6pm just to catch a glimpse of a real geisha. I did – from a distance, but in an instant she disappeared from sight. Those days I wish I had a camera with an autofocus lens. 😀
