Title:

Traditional Japanese Wedding, Fukuoka, Kyushu, Japan.

Caption:

A layer of white cream-like paint makeup is applied to the skin of this young bride. It is used a base for a dusting of fine white powder. All exposed skin, including areas of her neck, chest and back, is covered in white.
Her hair is matted down and enclosed in a tight net in preparation for the katsura, a large wig worn with traditional kimonos on wedding day.
