JAPAN'S ONLY FOREIGN GEISHA
48 images Created 22 Sep 2011
Gallery of photos of Japan's only known foreign geisha, Fukutaro from Romania. By definition in Japan, in order to be officially recognized as a geisha you should be registered with a geisha association. There are several foreigners living in Japan who claim to be geisha but they fail to meet this criteria. Fukutaro is a fully fledged geisha. Previously an Australian woman, Fiona Graham, had been accepted into a geisha association in Tokyo via other associations, but reportedly has since left.
