February Kanzashi

I had planned to have these out yesterday, but best laid plans and all that...

A popular choice for February's kanzashi is plum blossom, or ume, to mark the coming of spring.

Junior maiko wear kanzashi made up of many tiny plum blossoms in shades of pink, white and red, often with the long flowing falls or shidare. Senior maiko choose single or miwa (three flower) kanzashi. As ever, the box contains both versions - so no need to worry about outgrowing them until you turn your collar.
