Wiki Article: Mineko Iwasaki

Arthur Golden's Book Memiors of a Geisha is all that most people know about the life of a RL Geisha, but his view was a bit skewed.  This wiki article is about the woman that he talked to in order to gather the information that he used for his book.  To get her full story, please read her real memior:  Geisha, A Life.

Japan-guide.com

Sure, Japan-guide.com may seem like your typical tourist page but I have found it to be very useful.  We may not be going to RL Japan but if we want to make our SL Japan more authentic, then we need to know the customs.  The section on etiquette was especially helpful for a report that I once did on Japanese Table Manners.
