Książka będąca bardziej albumem przedstawia historię gejszy - jednego z łączników współczesnej Japonii z przeszłością. Ilustracje i zdjęcia pokazują różne aspekty z życia gejsz - ćwiczenia z tańca i gry na instrumentach, noszenia kimona.
My friend Angie bought this for me. I am obsessed with everything Geisha so this is my favorite book. My coffee table book.
