How do you start a career as a geisha?
First of all you have to be Japanese. There have only been a few exceptions of women becoming Geisha that were not Japanese. And that is because they were there to study the culture. You would need to be living in Japan, be around the age of 15 or 16, and have your parents consent to move out of your house and into an Okiya to completely transform your way of life into the years of training it takes to become a proper Geisha.
Why are geisha important to Japanese culture?
Geishas practice traditional art forms such as traditional song and dance and tea ceremony. all traditional art forms are important in japan such as sword making and kimono making etc. Unfortunately less and less people are willing to take up these art forms and the life of a geisha is one of them: they're dying out.

Can a western girl become a Geisha?
It is almost impossible for a western girl to become a Geisha. Geisha are only Japanese females, and they begin their training around the age of 16. There have been two instances that non-Japanese women have been allowed to become Geisha, and that is because they were being near the Geisha as a study, and the Geisha took them under their wing and allowed them to go through the process. If you would like to become more like a Geisha, take lessons on manners, etiquette, poise, as well as Japanese dance, poetry, conversation skills, and classic Japanese instruments.

How has the geisha influenced the Japanese culture?
Japan has traditionally been a male dominated society. The world of Geisha is a strictly female dominated society. While they do use their artistic talents to entertain male customers their way of life is a matriarchal hierarchy. Geisha carry on the traditional Japanese arts of song, dance, music and conversation. Without them much of Japan's cultural artistic heritage would fade away.
