Maiko Fukuharu, Japan

Oiran were courtesans in Japan. Usually considered a high rank yujo (prostitute) in Yoshiwara, a famous yukaku (pleasure district) in Tokyo, especially in the 17th and 18th century. However, they are distinguished from the yujo in that they were clever (studied classical literature, shodo, sado, Japanese poem, shamisen, and Go), entertainers, and many became celebrities of their times outside the pleasure districts.

Cinder Wedding Dress #2: in many Asian cultures brides will change their dresses several times throughout the ceremony (lucky girls...) While the bridal dress in Japan is usually a white kimono called a shiromuku, brides will often change into a more colorful iro-uchikake for the reception.
