Photo album Forbidden love Wriggling okiya Women
[About the product]
"Women's fragrances are sometimes sweet, sometimes poignant, sometimes bitter". The women of the geisha house become flowers in the veil of night yet again this evening. She wears alluring fragrances that lure men, and projects both a strong and bright outward appearance, but beneath is hidden a deep sadness and modest life. This is a heartfelt photo documentary that captures the lives of present-day women who live in the pleasure district with nothing but themselves, along with a glamorous but gritty atmosphere.
