What is geisha ? – Japanese traditional female entertainer-


Geisha are women who entertain guests at a banquet by serving them sake (drink), performing with song, shamisen (three-stringed instrument) and nihonbuyo (Japanese dancing). They are dressed in Japanese clothing, with their hair done up in Japanese style, and wearing white water face powder make-up. In general, a full-fledged geisha is called geigi and in the Kansai area around Kyoto and Osaka, geigi are called geiko. Geisha tend to be confused with yujo (courtesans), but this is misunderstanding; it is strictly an occupation that sells artistry.
