a geisha at work in Gion

Geisha ("person of the arts") are traditional Japanese artist-entertainers. Geisha were very common in the 18th and 19th centuries, and are still in existence today, although their numbers are dwindling. Geisha take lessons in several art forms for most of their lives, not just for entertaining customers but for a lifetime of learning.
