World of the Japanese Geisha: A Collection of Vintage Photos

Geisha have been known worldwide for their thick white make-up and their roots in Japanese culture. These entertainers achieve levels of status that even makes them famous and is a widely respected profession. You could even say they were the idols of Japan gone by. First appearing in the mid-eighteenth century, Japanese geisha have long filled the role of a ‘persons of the arts’ and even trendsetters. While it may seem like a glamorous lifestyle at first, a geisha must go through incredibly difficult training from a very young age. 

Geisha specialize in party-entertaining arts such as music, dance, and poetry. However, the first ever Japanese geisha were actually men! These days, geisha is a female profession that still occasionally entertain groups of customers at very high-end parties around Japan.
