Good initiative, but I fear just one geisha being trained in the city wont be enough to "revive the tradition".

Geisha are cool.

Thats what I often hear snap-happy foreign tourists exclaim when I am wandering around the Gion.

@ Moonraker - there is nothing stopping foreign women training as geisha. There have been famously successful geisha from places such as the UK, Australia and the USA. Of course, perfect nihongo is required.

I wish you luck in your efforts - it is a noble vocation.
