    Beautiful

    After I read "Memoirs of a Geisha", I was fascinated by the beauty and culture and quietness these women possess.  They have this aura about them, they are to be respected and loved.  A gentle beauty.  A natural beauty.  And all the work they go...

    Geisha - the Beauty of Old Japan.

    These women were entertainers, so beautiful and talented. They had a way about them that made them so out of this world. Geisha deserve respect. As missalissa said they were so much more then just glorified prostitutes. - RDW

    Loved the movie Memoirs of a Geisha - it defined their role for me, I thought they were glorified prostitutes before the movie.

    Read The Book And The Movie

    I first saw the movie when I was about thirteen, and it was a copied disc. It was a really fascinating life that the movie introduced, I wondered how someone could be sold off to a life like that and just forget their past life and take up one devoted pleasing men. I later read...

    Anthropology

    I took an "Asian Cultures" class in College and it was truly excellent. This is a wonderful nuance of a culture different than mine, with its own little rituals and secrets.  In many ways I envy their little secrets. I'm like that with all the "hidden"...

    Of course, so beautiful and intelligent.  I sing opera, and have performed in Madama Butterfly twice as a Geisha.  I learned so much about Geisha then.  How to walk pigeon toed so that hem of the dress doesn't move, how to gracefully wipe lipstick from a tea...

    Memoirs of a Geisha

    Ever since reading the book I have found them fascinating. I love the whole look and the lengths they go to to sustain that look. They look so beautiful and interesting, I'd love to learn more about them :)

    It Started With Shogun

    As a kid, I watched the mini-series Shogun on tv for that week in the 80s, and was hooked on Japan, Japanese culture, and geisha. I promptly read the book afterward. I even borrowed some Japanese books from the library to try and learn some of the language. The fascination died...

    As long as you are happy with yourself you should not feel alone. Instead the other people should feel fortunate if you let them into your life. Easy to say, I know.
