Miss SAKAE-SAN -- GEISHA WITH VIOLIN (#1 of 2)

What a nice, well-oiled, luxuriant head of hair. I'll bet it would drop down to her waist if she pulled out the pins. I'm posting two pictures of old Meiji-era Geisha posing with violins. Whether or not they could actually play them is beside the point. According to those who know better than I do, her Geisha name is Sakae さかえ Within a few years after Japan opened its ports to the world in the mid 19th Century, the violin is one the the first Western instruments the Japanese took to with…

Exploited children in Old Japan. Maiko had been sold as very young girls to geisha houses by poor families, with government backing until prostitution was allowed under US pressure in the Occupation.

JAPANESE SWIMSUIT GIRLS - Meiji-Era Bathing Beauties of Old Japan

Playing "Blind Man's Bluff" on the Beach ??? It's been several years since I've posted any "Bathing Beauty" images from old Japan. Here's three more, which brings the Set to 53 images. I have well over 100 of these in a box somewhere, so should really scan some more and throw them up here on Flickr. With only a few exceptions, all images in the set are from old POSTCARDS that were made and hand-colored in Japan over 100 years ago.. These three images being posted today were actually stamped…

Hairstyle “Originally believed to be worn by married women of the merchant class during the late Edo period starting in the Meiji era the sakkou was the hairstyle worn by apprentice geisha in the weeks leading up to their debut as full-fledged geisha.

TERUHA -- You Cannot Know Me Now. But... Perhaps You Can Understand Who I Was, Even if Only a Little....

I was a Geisha in a world where I wished that Geisha did not exist, and where I wished that men did not sell young girls like me into a trade where we were only used to make fortunes for others at the expense of our souls. At least that's how I felt about it, though other Geisha might have felt differently. Yet that is all I knew as a teenager, and in spite of many times wishing I could end it all, I kept at it. After all, I had a little step brother --- who, just like me, was not a child of…

Nagajuban - Lingerie Kimono 1910s

Geisha Sakae in her nagajuban (lingerie kimono), a postcard from around 1905 to 1910. The noted writer and critic, Masamune Hakuchō, saved some of the strongest criticism of his early career for a performance by the Kabuki actor Ichikawa Sadanji II. However, this may have been personally motivated, as Hakuchō’s first visit to a geisha house in late 1903 or early 1904 was an attempt to see the famous geisha, Sakae, but he was judged to be a pauper by the proprietress because of his untidy…

Osaka Maiko Yachiyo II, 1915 Myōseki (inherited names) are often used when naming a new Maiko (Apprentice Geisha) as a mark of respect for a former Geiko (Geisha) and as a means of carrying the cachet.

Osaka Maiko Yachiyo II - 1915

Myōseki (inherited names) are often used when naming a new Maiko (Apprentice Geisha) as a mark of respect for a former Geiko (Geisha) and as a means of carrying the cachet of celebrity down through generations. The geimei (professional name) of a meigi (famous geisha) who has retired from the profession is given to a promising young maiko, but with the suffix 'the second' added to it. This can carry on ad infinitum i.e. 'the third, the fourth, etc.' with successive generations. This…

MY FAVORITE OLD JAPANESE HAIR STYLE

Photographer unknown. There are more than enough examples of old Japanese hairstyles on my photostream --- from the earliest days of the Meiji era, through the post earthquake days of the Taisho era. I'm a "hair down" kind of guy, but when it comes to seeing it up, the above photo taken circa 1905-10 shows my favorite style of all (with apologies to Amy Winehouse for not choosing her hairstyle. I believe Amy based her own bee-hive bun on an F5 Tornado photograph) I thought that this style…

OIRAN -- QUEEN OF THE PROSTITUES -- or, Setting an Example For the Young Girls of Old Japan (#6)

[SAME CAPTION #1 - #5) Ca.1900-1915 photos of "Japan's Finest"....Prostitutes, that is. NOTE !!! The below caption, while historically accurate, contains sarcastic commentary about a certain aspect of Japan's glorified culture of prostitution. If sarcastic commentary about such a delicate subject is not your "thing", and offense is easily taken, I would advise you to avoid the below caption, and read a more SERIOUS commentary about the OIRAN and TAYUU here at this photo…
