I have heard of Lisa Dalby. If she can do it, why can't I? So here is the thing. Where? Where can I become Hokan? and more importantly, how?

Any ideas on where I can get an education in this? I am trying to learn tea ceremony, and can play the Koto. I also make my own Kimono and wig and have made a facebook page for my Onnagat persona, but I still need more study in dance. I am also in New Zealand, which makes things a tad harder.

Help? :oops: :?: :?

Hi, I do not think there is much for resources in this.

We're really not about trying to become Geisha/Maiko/ or an Onnagata, I'm afraid. Such things are a sort of unique and rare opportunity for Westerners and not something that can really be accomplished, but for a right time, right place sort of thing in the case of Liza Dalby and the such.
