Oiran by Sharidyon Oiran by Sharidyon
Japanese memories...
during my recent travel to Tokyo I've decided to have a concrete souvenir of my staying there and found this great photo studio that can transform you into a perfect courtesan of ancient Japan (Oiran).
The weight of the wig and kimonos was something unexplainable, but being Oiran for one hour has been a real fun!XD

You look so gorgeous~!!! I wish I could do something like that as well but I've never left the United States farther than Mexico. Originally, the plan for me graduating a while back was supposed to be an overseas trip but sadly, that never happened. I wish I could've had that kind of experience as you had.

If my memory serves me, aren't Oiran the prostitutes? I know there is a difference; Geishas do not perform sexual acts. The "Gei" in Geisha means "Art", or a person that creates art through music, singing, telling stories/jokes, and creating floral displays.

the Oiran (=two kanji, 花 meaning "flower", and 魁 meaning "leader" or "first")were associated to prostitutes, but they were also entertainers: the sexual aspect in this role is surely emphasizes and we can say that they were high-class courtesans.
Their outfits were so garish, so, when I first saw an Oiran pic, I've decided immediately that I had to wear it!!! ^^

You look so pretty in this, how did you do this? Did you just pay and they made you into a geisha? Did they take the picture and you did the make up yourself? Just curious is all XD
It's so cool you got to go to Tokyo XD

Per un attimo avevo pensato che fosse quel famoso kimono regalato... (-_^ )
