Koppori, which are also called pokkuri or o-kobo, are tall clogs worn by maiko. Children wear them during special festivals, especially the Seven-Five-Three Festival, which is a Shinto festival celebrating the growth of girls at ages 7, 5 and 3.

This pair belongs to my Japanese neighbor whose 3 adult daughters each wore them during their 7-5-3 fesivals.

Nice reflection and great contrast.... it's a tiny nitpick but it somehow feels like the image would be more centered if the camera was moved ever so slightly to the left...

Definitely unique, they are piece of art! I'm not crazy about the reflection, but I'm sure it will go over well.

Interesting shoes and nice composition forming a diamond shape.
Aren't these used by Geishas (and their apprentices Maikos) ?
