"Shirabyoshi" dancer is the dancing geisha of disguising as a man which started in around the end of Heian Era.

Gioh, Gijo, Hotoke-gozen, Shizuka-gozen, etc. are historically famous "shirabyoshi" dancers.

It is said that it came to be called so since they danced with the "imayo-uta (=modern and easy song)" in the "so-byoshi (=simple rhythm)."

"Tate-eboshi" cap, "suikan" apron and "hitoe" red " hakama" are worn and a long sword in the case of "nishiki-zutsumi fuji-maki" is hung on the waist.

In her hand, the dancer has a "kawahori" fan, of which sticks show on one side.
