As an apprentice geisha, I received my training at the Yoshiwara Okiya @ Little Yoshiwara. But when my onesan moved to Hosoi Mura and became geisha at Miyagawacho Hanamachi Okiya, I followed her here. Over the years I’ve participated in geisha stage shows and other events, but I never joined the okiya. This is a photo of me today, returning to the home of my heart and the sea I love so dearly. It has been over a year since the tragedy of The Samurai & the Geisha, someday I will tell the full tale.
