In 2014, we held an event in NY to spread Japanese traditional performing arts overseas with Kikuno who belongs to Ganriinkagai in Nara prefecture. We borrowed a tea room in Manhattan NY and had guests see geisha dances and had them experience the Geisha geisha entertainment with serving sake.
Japanese sake with the Geisha Kikuno label
This time, we brought the sake which we asked Harushika Sake Brewery in Nara Prefecture with the Kikuno label to NY. Everyone became interested in Japanese tradition and sake, and it became a very lively event.
Exhibition of geisha kimonos
We wanted to have overseas visitors to take a look the kimonos that geisha usually wear. All of those kimonos were wonderful and beautiful, so many people stopped and looked closely.
Activities to introduce geisha to foreigners.
We wanted many New Yorkers to know what a geisha was like, so this time we used subways also walked around the city to move around. We wanted many New Yorkers to know what a geisha was like, so this time we used subways also walked around the city to move around. Many people talked to us, but it’s New York, they quickly get used! We would like to strive to have as many people as possible understand the culture of Geisha, Geisha and Geisha correctly.
Our desire for overseas
The declining HANAMACHI and the world of geisha that lack successors..
We think still the scale what we can is small, but we want to continue to support many HANAMACHI around the world. With Geisha Kikuno, we want to promote the presence of geisha not only in Japan but also overseas.
