Meet Eitaro. The 26-year-old comes from a family of geisha: his mother and grandmother both practiced the centuries-old Japanese tradition, in which women trained in the gei, or classical Japanese arts, host parties of men. Eitaro took over for his mother after she died of cancer, and is now apparently one of Japan’s most sought after geisha, both for performances and television appearances. Eitaro’s mother’s vision was to restore geishas to prominence, after their numbers dwindled from 80,000 to approximately 1,000 in a difficult and changing entertainment industry.
