This is a book (documentary) interesting as double reading: the life of this woman in Japan to particular manners. Life is hard for a poor family girl and the road ahead is clear: being sold to become geisha. And this education is in pain, before accessing real status: geisha. It is difficult to understand and accept that this woman did not revolt against this inexorable fate. For this woman, who lives in his time, tells us his story without bitterness rooted in the mindset of Japan then and its old traditions ... This is how we take knowledge of life daily in Japan.
