Spring 2019: Europe


Dear Network and friends of the Fukagawa Geishas,

We would like to share with you news about our next trip to Europe !
Four geishas will be visiting Europe from Fukagawa, the oldest geisha district in Japan and the origin where female geisha began. One of them is Sayuki, the first white woman to become a geisha.
After our successful trip to Italy last year, we are invited this spring in Prague in the 1st week of April and Bellinzona, Switzerland from April 10-14.
We are looking for any other countries who would like to invite us before or after those dates.
We would be really grateful from you to share this post to your contacts that might be interested in :

🌸 Traditional Japanese banquets: at museums, restaurants, private parties, Embassy events,… – a banquet is a dinner with the geisha talking to guests and do a performance halfway through the meal.

🌸 Having a talk from Sayuki about the geisha world with slides and footage. Sayuki is an Oxford University-trained social anthropologist and currently lectures in Geisha Studies at Waseda University.

For more information, Sayuki will answer to you directly and will be happy to share her experience on performing for various publics.
