The nape (komata) is the part of the body considered focal in Japanese eroticism. While all the face and the remaining visible part of the neck is completely painted in white, the geisha will leave a “V” shape unpainted to enhance the sensuality of this area. For special occasions, for instance when a maiko becomes a geisha, they leave three lines forming a “W” unpainted.

Geisha make up
Tayuu's ornate hairstyle (back view) & kimono info for replicating a reasonably accurate costume version. NOT GEISHA, GEIKO, MAIKO - who use less ornate (attention-getting) hairstyles; their profession is based on preserving the traditional ARTS such as dance, singing and music and entertaining in a non-sexual manner (NOT prostitution). Oiran and Tayuu were the highest class of courtesans - the highest rank in the hierarchy of prostitution in the pleasure quarters. They were NOT Geisha.

If you ask politely, Maiko-san and Geiko-san might pose for you, but never be insistent or rude or get in their way. When you see them, they're at work; treat them as professionals. Also, never photograph their clients.

Just because digital isn't pen and paper, does not mean everything learnt before is irrelevant and should be forgotten. Quite the opposite. It is highly unlikely academic writing in its underlying traditional sense will be lost but its surface realisation may be different to what we currently see as standard.

Oiran (花魁) - Oiran were the highest class of courtesans in Edo (now known as Tokyo). An oiran was valued not only for her beauty and charm, but also her wit, knowledge, and skill in traditional Japanese arts. Their dress often consisted of layers of ornate kimono and extremely elaborate hairstyles, with one distinguishing feature being an obi tied at the front of the body rather than at the back. Though there are no longer any oiran left in Japan because of laws.

I think I was Japanese in a previous life. Their philosophy, culture, simplicity of design all speak to my inner soul.

geisha make up
"The origins of the white make-up on a geisha’s face are still nowadays uncertain. One theory has it that in the Middle ages a traveller returned from Europe with stories of “pale-faced” beauties. Although this might sound quite plausible, the white make-up is said to come from China and later adopted by Japanese courtesans. Considering that its use first appeared in the Heian era (794-1185 a.C.), when China had a strong cultural influence on Japan, this sounds like the most likely version.”

Kimihiro-san. One of the most loved maiko kanzashi is April's junior maiko design. A perennial classic of tiny soft pink cherry blossoms with the silver butterflies of spring. in fact perhaps this elaborate sakura kanzashi is the most popular style of all!

Lovely geisha. Beautiful combination of colors and patterns. by kkinterest
In full costume, the geisha must perform her duties regardless. After all, she is a thing of beauty who does not speak nor answer back.
