still afloat

Geiko photo-journal

It is really interesting to see that the floating world is still afloat, despite the many changes in Japanese society. Being a geiko is such an amazing art (it's a total thing, everything they do is artistic, even opening doors) that it would be sad if it was lost. Though, if they want it to survive, they need to make some changes, according to Mineko Iwasaki.

Also this photo-journals corrects some of the misconceptions put about by the film, Memoirs of a Geisha.
