En 1944, pendant la Seconde Guerre mondiale, le gouvernement fit fermer les quartiers de plaisir et envoya les geishas travailler en usine pour soutenir l'effort de guerre. Le 25 octobre 1945, les quartiers de plaisir rouvrirent. L'interdiction totale de la prostitution en 1957 démarqua définitivement les geishas des prostituées. À la même époque, de nouvelles lois sur le travail des enfants et la scolarité obligatoire interdirent aux filles de devenir maiko avant quinze ans.

"It is not for Geisha to want. It is not for Geisha to feel. Geisha is an artist of the floating world. She dances. The rest is shadows. The rest is secret" (from Memoirs of a Geisha).
