Photographer's Note

In Japan, Geisha are professional hostesses who entertain guests through various performing arts. Geisha girls and women are not ordinary hostesses and are not prostitutes (Some people, especially outside Japan, confuse them with Oiran). In the history Geisha danced for warriors. These talented girls are patiently and extensively trained in a number of traditional skills such as Japanese ancient dance, singing, playing instruments, flower arrangement, wearing kimono, tea ceremony, calligraphy, conversation, alcohol serving manners, and more.

I was lucky to see a Geisha at a social gathering in Kyoto. In Kyoto dialect, Geisha is pronounced as Geiko or Maiko.
