This is a book called Manners and Mischief: Gender, Power, and Etiquette in Japan. I just had a quick look with this book and I found there are some information about geisha and Japanese customs, which could inspire me.


This is a journey artical called Review: Geisha: The Story of the American Who Became Geisha by Liz Dalby. I can learn more about geisha from this article because different books express different stories. It will be helpful to me.


This is a book called Geisha, Harlot, Strangler, Star: A Woman, Sex, and Morality in Modern Japan. It said ‘Some crimes achieve notoriety far out of proportion to the events themselves, and often they are crimes by women. Examples abound. Most schoolchildren in the United States learn a nursery rhyme about an ax murder committed in 1893, allegedly by a woman named Lizzy Borden.¹’ from the introduction. So I think I can learn different opinions and views from this book.
