Geisha of Gion - PDF | ePUB | PDB | Audio books | Kindle
GEISHA A LIFE No woman in the three hundred year history of the karyukai has ever come forward in public to tell her story We have been constrained by unwritten rules not to do so by the robes of tradition and by the sanctity of our exclusive calling But I feel it is time to speak out br br Celebrated as the most successful geisha of her generation Mineko Iwasaki was only five years old when she left her parents home for the world of the geisha For the next twenty five years she would live a life filled with extraordinary professional demands and rich rewards She would learn the formal customs and language of the geisha and study the ancient arts of Japanese dance and music She would enchant kings and princes captains of industry and titans of the entertainment world some of whom would become her dearest friends Through great pride and determination she would be hailed as one of the most prized geishas in Japan s history and one of the last great practitioners of this now fading art form br br In Geisha a Life Mineko Iwasaki tells her story from her warm early childhood to her intense yet privileged upbringing in the Iwasaki okiya household to her years as a renowned geisha and finally to her decision at the age of twenty nine to retire and marry a move that would mirror the demise of geisha culture Mineko brings to life the beauty and wonder of Gion Kobu a place that existed in a world apart a special realm whose mission and identity depended on preserving the time honored traditions of the past She illustrates how it coexisted within post World War II Japan at a time when the country was undergoing its radical transformation from apost feudal society to a modern one br br There is much mystery and misunderstanding about what it means to be a geisha I hope this story will help explain what it is really like and also serve as a record of this unique component of Japan s cultural history writes Mineko Iwasaki Geisha a Life is the first of its kind as it delicately unfolds the fabric of a geisha s development Told with great wisdom and sensitivity it is a true story of beauty and heroism and of a time and culture rarely revealed to the Western world Geisha of Gion books by Mineko Iwasaki, Rande Brown
