researching geisha

Hey Jill, thanks a million. The book arrived in the post last week and I have made a start on reading - very interesting so far... Just like The Lord of The Rings, I plan to finish reading this one long before the movie hits the cinema!

Typical of Japanese cinema, for some reason international movies are often re-titled. This makes my job rather challenging whenever the movies topic comes up. House of Flying Daggers was re-titled to Lovers in the local TV guide, and is also known as Ambush From Ten Sides. One of the movies I am looking forward to seeing before the year is out, is locally titled Sayuri, our character's acquired name.
A true geisha can stop a man in his tracks with a single look.
Sounds scary! Want to see some photos of the real thing?
