Asakusa Geisha

Post  AnaIkimaru on Sun Jul 11, 2010 3:37 am

Some interesting facts from this series:

[list][*]Right now, there are 42 geisha in Asakusa. The other 5 "geisha" are actually hokan.
The ages range from 21-86.
They entertain at Ryotei.
They take their lessons at the Kenban Association- the teachers use the assoc.'s classrooms.
They add sake in addition to water in their oshiroi makeup.
Yuko is hilarious, and the oldest working geisha in the district. Nuff said.
When a geisha is offered sake by her patron, she uses the same cup as he does.
Apparently, y'all need to eat at Seiji. It's their favorite sushi joint.
They like Arome for sweets.
Check out Kazusaya- a store featuring geisha goods like obiage and kitsuke items.
Also see the Kurodaya for paper goods.
And Ryushotei Nishimura for excellent wagashi and mochi!
