Ikuko, the "big sister" of Tokyo's Akasaka geisha district, came to the capital to seek her fortune in 1964, the year Tokyo first hosted the Olympics. But the novel coronavirus pandemic has made her fear for her centuries-old profession as never before. Though the number of geisha - famed for their witty conversation, beauty and skill at traditional arts - has been falling for years, Ikuko and her colleagues were without work for months due to Japan's state of emergency and now operate under awkward social distancing rules. "There were more than 400 geisha in Akasaka when I came, so many I couldn't remember their names. But times changed," Ikuko, now 80, said. Only 20 remain, and there aren't enough engagements to take on new apprentices - especially now. Coronavirus-induced austerity has slashed expense accounts, and many people remain wary of spending hours in the elegant but closed traditional rooms where geisha entertain. Engagements are down 95 percent, and come with new rules: no pouring drinks for customers or touching them even to shake hands, and sitting 2 metres apart. Masks are hard to wear with their elaborate wigs, so they mostly don't. REUTERS/Kim Kyung-Hoon SEARCH "GEISHA COVID-19" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES. TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY

The Wider Image: What they left behind: Sri Lanka's Easter Sunday bombing victims
An empty workshop of Dulip Kumar, 46, a carpenter who was killed during Easter Sunday bombings at St. Sebastian Church, is seen in Negombo, Sri Lanka, May 1, 2019. Dulip Kumar and his two teenage children died while his wife survived with an injury to her right eye. "He was known all over the town for his skills. We used to work together. He was suppose to open the workshop the next day of Easter after a few days break. It feels strange to come here without him," said his younger brother Jude Prasad Appuhamy.

The Wider Image: In Gaza, women walk thin line between hope and despair
Amid the poverty and deprivation of the Gaza Strip, Palestinian women struggle to find a taste of normality that is taken for granted in much of the rest of the world. Nada Rudwan used to work in digital marketing, but as her work slowed - unemployment in Gaza stands at nearly 50 percent - she decided to put her tech skills towards one of her passions: cooking. "It was difficult to find a job, so I thought of doing something I like and that will make me money at the same time," said Rudwan, 27, who posts cooking tutorials to social media platforms under the name "Nada Kitchen".

Yannis Behrakis, award-winning Reuters photographer, dies aged 58
Yannis Behrakis, one of Reuters' most decorated and best-loved photographers, has passed away after a long battle with cancer. He was 58. Since joining the news wire 30 years ago, Behrakis covered many of the most tumultuous events around the world, including conflicts in Afghanistan and Chechnya, the earthquake in Kashmir and the Egyptian uprising of 2011. In the process, he won the respect of both peers and rivals for his skill and bravery. He also led a team to a Pulitzer Prize in 2016 for coverage of the refugee crisis. Colleagues who worked with him in the field said Reuters had lost a talented and committed journalist. REUTERS/Yannis Behrakis/File photo SEARCH "YANNIS BEHRAKIS" FOR THIS STORY.
