A palavra geisha significa literalmente "pessoa da arte, artista", e ela foi originalmente usada para designar comediantes e músicos que se apresentavam em banquetes e festas particulares no século XVII. Assim, as primeiras gueixas não foram mulheres, mas homens. Como os palcos estavam proibidos às mulheres, as festas privadas tornaram-se os únicos lugares onde as mulheres podiam tocar música, dançar e cantar.

On the chair rail in front of the girl is written "Japanese Járlis style today".
