Oiran

The word oiran comes from the Japanese phrase oira no tokoro no nēsan (おいらの所の姉さん) which translates into “my elder sister.” When written in kanji, the word consists of two characters,  meaning “flower”, and  meaning “leader” or “first.” Technically, only the high-class prostitutes of Yoshiwara were called oiran, although the term is widely applied to all.      ….. by Wiki
