Ever since I can remember first seeing them, I have been obsessed with geisha.

I can't say why. I don't know if it is their elegance, the clothing, the grace, the beauty, I'm not sure. There is just something about them I love.

They are a dwindling type of performer as far as I know, but they still have young women and girls joining their ranks.

And of course being a geisha is a popular Western fantasy.

I pray that these performers never fade away from the Japanese landscape.
