匿名からの質問: Hello, your blog is perfect! I love it so much! But I have one question... If maikos are not in legal age, who authorizes them this decision? I mean... How they choose to become a geisha and it's okay for they parents or something like that?


回答を送信:

They choose this path themselves but their parents have to approve it, meet with okasan and sign the contract.
