FEW Kansai May 2023 Meeting

Real Geisha, Real Women –

Past, Present, Future 


Peter MacIntosh

Our May speaker, Peter MacIntosh, is uniquely positioned to offer us a glimpse into Kyoto's geisha community. Over his 30-plus years in the city, he has developed close connections with many individuals living, working, and training in the "Flower and Willow World". Although geisha culture is rooted in tradition, it is not impervious to change. Join us for a lively evening of insights into Kyoto's geisha culture and how it is responding to shifts in modern society and the world at large.
