Niigata Prefecture Geisha!

Post  AnaIkimaru on Sun Jul 11, 2010 3:17 am

Yes, from the hometown of Takahashi Rumiko, famed manga artist, comes....GEISHA!

Apparently, geisha in Niigata work in the area known as Furumachi, and instead of being called geisha are called "Geigi". Very interesting!

Even to this day:
