Geisha, geiko or geigi are names for traditional Japanese female entertainers who act as hostesses and whose skills include performing various Japanese arts such as classical music, dance and games. Geishas were very popular in the 18th and 19th centuries. But even today there are still a few Geishas left in Japan. From the book “We are all equal”, by Finn Nygaard.
