Understanding Japan’s Geisha

Despite an obvious western curiosity with geisha, they remain hidden in a cloak of secrecy. Geisha are not prostitutes or concubines if anything they are the same as hostesses. Geisha do not master the erotic talents; these duties are reserved for women called yugos. Comparatively, geisha go through intense training learning only the traditional Japanese arts. Geisha are very respectable women in Japan’s society and would never routinely indulge in relationships with different men.

The Queen’s walk in London:

One of many tops and free attractions that keep us going and returning to this amazing destination, the worldide capital. The city is still at the top of European destinations and always very competitive. Antique markets, second-hand shops, amazing gardens, architecture, museums, extraordinary food shops and amazing tea culture. Due to festivals and international events accommodation is quite expensive even though with many offers.
