[ Story ]
Some geishas have had many years of training and are accomplished women, skilled in singing, dancing or playing musical instruments, as well as composing poetry and being agreeable companions.
On the other hand, there are geisha who cannot do any of these things, yet become favourites just because they have the knack of pleasing men.
Koen belongs to the latter class. She is a simple woman, flitting from one party to another, convinced that women are made to please men. She always claims that she does not have the ability to do anything properly. But finally she is determined to make something of herself and takes up the study of singing. However, long-standing habits are hard to break. She becomes her old self again, laughing and pouring sake for her guests.
