Geishas

Spread the love


The tradition of the geishas in Japan began in the early 18th century and is still carried on today. The original performers were men who would entertain clients through musical performance, dance, and storytelling. The term geisha essentially means, “performing artist,” and while the role of a geisha is very much the same, the profession is now reserved for women. Today there are several banquet houses throughout Japan where visitors can enjoy a traditional meal and experience the beauty and art of a geisha performance.
