Geisha in the Garden - Reception and Performances.  Guests to the special event being held by the Storrier Stearns Japanese Garden, in partnership With The Japan Foundation, Los Angeles, will have an opportunity to meet with the three geisha visiting the West coast from Kyoto.

These highly trained artists in their kimono costumes and oshiroi makeup will give two performances of music and dance in the teahouse. In between there will be plenty of time at the reception to talk with them (with interpreters) and experience one of the most unique cultural traditions in the world that has been practiced for centuries and is still honored today.

Miehina is a "geiko" which is what geisha are known as in Kyoto. She is from the Miyagawa-cho geisha district. Considered a "star" in Kyoto, Miehina is hired throughout Japan for her dance and shamisen music skills. She travels internationally to perform as a geisha at events in England, Ireland, Holland, Finland and New York City. She will be playing the shamisen during the performances.

Kanako is also from the Miyagawa-cho geisha district. Born in Osaka, Kanako is a senior "maiko" (apprentice) who will become a full-fledged geisha this fall. Among her many customers are kabuki and Hollywood actors. She will be dancing in the performances.

Konami is from the Gion-kobu geisha district. She is one of the most popular maiko in Gion and in high demand. She is a senior maiko known for her beautiful dancing skills.
