Geisha: Traditions Still Alive

During the Edo Period, Niigata used to be the largest port in the Sea of Japan and was used extensively for trade. Due to this mercantile tradition, a large "Hanamachi" (Geisha District) formed in order to entertain the large number of visitors. This tradition lives on in the area and modern visitors can step back in time by watching Geisha perform in the former manor of a wealthy merchant.
