Geisha is a Japanese Word. It alludes to young women who are trained in the Japanese social arts. They are usually in the profession of entertaining and were often prostitutes. They were trained in dance, music, singing tea ceremonies and flower arrangements. They would even serve tea to customers in tea houses in Japan. They were very elaborately and daintily dressed complete with heavy makeup and usually wore beautiful kimonos.

A town geisha would operate as a free lancer of sorts entertaining people at parties. A quarter geisha on the other hand would only entertain customers who frequented the various pleasure houses. Although geishas were predominantly female there were male geishas as well. Generally they were those men who were so enamoured with geishas that they squandered all their wealth on them and thus had no alternative than to become male geishas.
