I love how in this era of woke politics and the new-style Puritanism it has engendered, there are still "apprentice Geisha" in the world's third-biggest economy.

Lovely ladies..

I love how in this era of woke politics and the new-style Puritanism it has engendered, there are still "apprentice Geisha" in the world's third-biggest economy.

Of course, it's a great relief in this ideologically contaminated and extremist world..

@JeffLee - I love how your passive-aggressive comment is getting negative votes, in the world's third-biggest economy. Unless you were sarcastic... Wokeness (and other similar trends) are the biggest disaster that could happen to this current generation. Personally I'm glad Japan is open and polite enough to admit the geiko's (and other traditional artists') existance and role in the society, and beautifully integrate them.

"your passive-aggressive comment"

That's pretty funny. My comment based observation of the facts is to be taken at face value. Methinks you doth react too much.

At first glance on a small screen I thought they were a pack of Dalmatians!

Happy to see not a personality-erasing mask on anyone.

Nice picture. Proper dress code adds solemnity, beauty, and decorum to the sacred space at shrines, temples, churches, gurdwaras, mosques, synagogues, and such holy places sanctified by generations of devotees, pilgrims, and visitors.
