Geisha Girl

Documentary following 15-year-old Yukina as she leaves home and moves to Kyoto to embark on the arduous training needed to become a geisha.

The profession has always been shrouded in controversy, with some believing geisha are little more than high-class prostitutes. At such a young age, does Yukina really understand what this ancient profession has in store for her?

    I loved this because it was so interesting.
    It rankled me that a 15 year old girl is expected to drink alcohol and entertain grown men. At such a young age, she chooses this profession for life.
    But Japanese customs and laws are worlds apart from my neck of the woods.
