A new preface examines how geisha have been profoundly affected by the changes of the past quarter century yet--especially in Kyoto--have managed to take advantage of modern developments to maintain their social position with flair.
PortraitLiza Dalby is the author of East Wind Melts the Ice: A Memoir through the Seasons (UC Press), The Tale of Murasaki: A Novel, and Kimono: Fashioning Culture.
