What is difference an Oiran and a Geisya?

Answer by Makiko Itoh:海外組

Oiran (花魁) was a name given to a prostitute who was very popular and highly regarded, mostly for her beauty, in the brothels of Yoshiwara in Edo (Tokyo). In the Edo period, prostitution conducted in specified areas, called yuukaku (遊郭), like Yoshiwara and was legal. A regular Yoshiwara prostitute was called a yuujo (遊女) which means “play woman.” (Other types of prostitutes had other names.) An oiran was like the pinup girl of Edo—many of the bijin-ga (pictures of beautiful women) that exist as woodcut prints are of oiran.

There are no oiran left in modern Japan since prostitution is illegal now. There are some borderline almost prostitution businesses around, but the women who work in them are not called oiran or yuujo.

A geisha (芸者), geiko (芸子), or geiki (芸妓), is a trained entertainer who is very skilled in song, dance, playing an instrument, and otherwise entertaining guests. Although not primarily prostitutes, some did sleep with clients and many “successfully” retired by becoming the mistress of a client, or sponsored by one or more, and so forth. There were also male geisha in the Edo period.

A tayuu (太夫) was the name used especially in Kyoto and Osaka for highly lauded and popular geiko and yuujo. Early on, the term was used for similarly ranked women in Edo too, but oiran became more widely used. (The term tayuu is also used in many other contexts for men and women. Basically it does mean the best or most respected in a certain field, such as in noh theater.)

”極上の一品”

私が感知できる領域は、ビジュアルアート全体のせいぜい3%にも満たないだろう

多くの写真、絵画、彫刻など・・デジタル画像によって、また、実物を観ている

ネット上でほとんどの作品は観ることが出来る

そうすると、この世の作品のほとんどを網羅しているような錯覚があるが

実のところ、3%どころか、1%にも満たないかもしれない

それに、自分の感性がどこまで届いているのか? その領域は?

となれば、 ”客観性” をもって、自分の作品を語ることは愚かなことだ

とはいえ、上に載せてる「作品」は、私にとっては ”極上の一品” であると確信する。
