Geisha

Since I’ve been In Japan I have always wanted to go see a Geisha performance’ I want to let you know what exactly Is a Geisha.

Geisha means art (gei) person (sha) it could be translated into “art person. They were skilled professional female entertainers performing traditional Japanese arts as dance, music or storytelling. Young girls were sold into the geisha life by their families until the mid-20th century and were often subject to the ritual of ‘mizu-age,’ whereby their virginity was sold to the highest bidder.
