Geisha are traditional Japanese female entertainers who act as hostesses. Their skills include performing various arts such as classical music, dance, games, and conversation, traditionally to entertain male customers. Geisha hold high social status and are single. There is currently no western equivalent for a geisha—they are truly the most impeccable form of Japanese art. The term geisha literally translates to mean "entertainer". Some prostitutes refer to themselves as "geisha", but they are not. Geishas are not submissive and subservient, but in fact they are some of the most financially and emotionally successful and strongest women in Japan, and traditionally have been so.

Lucy was a successful geisha. She could entertain her male customers with music, dance, and conversation "ONLY". If there was more than "only" with some customers, it's none of your business. She was very different from the typical Japanese wife. She showed her skill, while the ideal wife was modest. She seemed carefree, the ideal wife was somber and responsible. The Sexual Revolution that happened in the Western world in the 60s never happened in Japan. So, geisha made their own kind of revolution; they emancipated themselves from men. The geisha system was founded, actually, to promote the independence and economic self-sufficiency of women. And that was its stated purpose, and it actually accomplished that quite admirably in Japanese society, where there were very few routes for women to achieve that sort of independence. So, geisha are feminists, not prostitutes as many people think.

Once, Lucy was the witness of a "True Crime". This day she learned that "Love Kills". She was "Watching the Detectives" doing their job. She knew who was the murderer: "The Man with the Iron Fists". She didn't say anything to the police cause she knew it would mean a death sentence for her. "The Tale of the Princess Kaguya" ended sadly with this murder. "The Trouble with Bliss" is to share it with dangerous men. Princess Kaguya learned it too late, and she paid with her own life. Never fall in love with a member of the Yakuza.

Japan is like a big "City of Industry". A very capitalist country where social status, material success and money are so important. They are no longer zen. Japan used to be a meditative country, but capitalism killed the meditative souls and spirits.

Lucy knows there's no "Magic Wonderland". She had to fight hard to make her way through the complex geisha ranking system. Now she is respected by everybody, she wouldn't allow anyone to call her a "Geisha girl", or if you want, a prostitute.

There are a few things she learned on her way up the ladder in the geisha community, and she was willing to share with us some personal views and experiences.

"The neck is kind of what's sexy in Japan, so you have to have the kimono a little bit back. It was just a whole different way of appealing to what was sexy."

Nowadays Japanese are into cartoon sex. Whatever part of the body, neck or any other parts are better than cartoon sex or hologram sex, at least it's real flesh, real girls.

"When you have something that close to you, you want to make sure that you're aware of it."

Whenever a man gets too close to her physically; she wants to make sure he knows the difference between geisha and geisha girl. If it's a GI, she would just slap him in the face cause she knows he thinks she is a prostitute.

"You can't look back; you have to keep looking forward."

Life is so sad and disappointing most of the time. It's better to forget most of it once it's behind. Focusing on a goal to achieve, or something that makes you happy help you forget all the shit you had to go through. Sorry for the optimistic, but if you look to life globally instead of focusing only on the good; you'll see more shit than good. It's just the way life is.

"Everything I buy is vintage and smells funny. Maybe that's why I don't have a boyfriend."

The real reason why Lucy doesn't have a boyfriend is because they are never good enough for her. Many Japanese men prefer to find a girl in South East Asia, especially Philippines girls, cause Japanese girls are too demanding financially.

So, now you know there are feminists in Japan, and it was long before the 60s.

"So, goodnight Lucy. If someday you get tired of being a geisha; you could become a "Charlie's Angels" in "Shanghai Noon", and your life would turn into "Magic Wonderland"."
