A word from the webmistress Amaya Booker; an Australian tech worker currently stationed in Silicon Valley.


This page was created in the late 1990s when there was almost no information in English on Geisha, particularly on the web. The page got inadvertantly popular and left to stagnate for a long time.

Since then I have been lucky enough to go to Japan several times and had the joy of attending a number of events with Geisha and Maiko. Many of the images and videos in this page are my own personal media collected on tourist jaunts, please link back to them if you wish to use them.

As a history buff, a great reader and a Geisha obsessive I have a great many books and resources on Geisha that I have collected over time. I continue to be surprised at the lack of factual information on the flower and willow world on the web. This page is updated periodically as new books or material are available.
