Shutter Moment: Gion hairdresser

[Kyoto hairdresser - Photo Ad Blankestijn]

This hairdresser in the Gion area of Kyoto has dressed out her modern hairsalon with a traditional inuyarai, a screen of bamboo strips to protect the lower part of buildings from fouling by animals or people. Somehow, it does not fit... on the other hand, this is something you could only come across in Kyoto!
