(はななり)

[商品コード.0675]

(explanations in Japanese and English)

少女たちは舞妓になることを夢見て、京都・花街にやって来る。
だが、華やかさの半面には厳しさがある。
立ち居振る舞い、芸事、座待ち。
お客を夢の世界へいざなうため、努力の日々が続く。
修業は歳をとっても終わらない。
自らの憧れは、担い手となった途端、自らに跳ね返ってくる。
夢を追い、夢に生きる女性たちの実像に焦点を合わせた。
<日英両語対応>


 This is a story about the lifestyle of the Maiko and Geiko of Kyoto. In Kyoto there are five communities where Maiko and Geiko live. A lot of girls who aspire to become a Maiko come to these communities but most of them leave soon because of the strict lifestyle. They entertain mainly rich male guests at exclusive Japanese-style parties. They have to be elegant, polite and beautiful, but also entertaining. They live in a house with the housemother who manages all their affairs and other Maiko and young Geiko. They are thoroughly trained in how to behave by a housemother and the seniors.

After several years as a Maiko, and after they reach 20 years of age, they become a Geiko. This means being an adult in their community. During this period both their appearance and their inner maturity develop.

After becoming a Geiko, they keep improving their hospitality and performing art skills. The true essence of the Maiko and Geiko’s beauty isn’t only their physical appearance but their subtle internal beauty.
