Geisha

History of the Geisha In earlier Japan the "geisha" wasn't necessasarily referred to as geisha. Rather the saburko girls, typically displaced girls. These girls would entertain men, in most circumstances sexually, but others would obtain a higher education and yes become entertainers but in a more superior fashion.......

Becoming a GeishaA maiko is a geisha in training. To become a geisha you are mentored by a onee-san(older sister) who teaches you the tasks of being a geisha. They teach them the proper way to serve tea, and how to communicate with clients.
