Popular Tokyo Geisha Hawaryu during the late Meiji era - Japan, Early 20th Century

Geisha Geiko or Geigi are traditional, female Japanese entertainers whose skills include performing various Japanese arts such as classical music and dance. Hawaryu was a popular Tokyo Geisha during the late Meiji era. If marriage was delayed (or never happened) her career as a Geisha could have continued during the early years of the Taisho period as well.
