- Book: Geisha: The Secret History of a Vanishing World
- Location: Japan
- Author: Lesley Downer
A wonderful insight into the life of a geisha, a dwindling phenomenon tackled sensitively and with authority. I took this on a trip to Kyoto and found it wonderfully informative on my quest to see a Geisha in the flesh (never happened) but I came away with a richer knowledge.
