Just Seven Days to Go in my Kickstarter Campaign - My book Geiko and Maiko of Kyoto is on the home straight on Kickstarter now. 
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/robertvankoesveld/geiko-and-maiko-of-kyoto. Please do have a look at the video on the link above to get a feeling for the project. This is Toshikana from Miyagawacho before she made her transition to Geiko. #Kyoto   #Geiko   #Maiko   #Geisha   #Japan   #Kickstarter

The Kitchen God is one of the most important of domestic gods that protect the hearth and family. 

On the 23rd/24th of the 12th month of the lunar calendar, a week before Chinese New Year, the Kitchen God returns to heaven to report on the activities of every household to the Jade Emperor. People will make offerings to the Kitchen God on this day so that he'll put in a good word for them. As a result, the Jade Emperor will not punish or may even reward the family for the coming year.
