The changing world of the modern Geisha

A really cool look into the changing standards for Geisha’s of today. Fascinating but also sad.

“At the peak of their career, they numbered over 80,000 in Japan. Now, boiled down to a number lower than 1,000, the modern geisha has become more a novelty than the once revered and exclusive figures they once were.”

Yes, it is sad. I guess it’s always sad to see traditions fade away.

There was another one about the LAST swordmaker in Taiwan (I think) and I couldn’t watch it because it made me so sad.
