Room 7 - Geisha - QR

 

This Room’s Theme

Each of our 11 guest rooms is designed around a common fear or human experience. The Geisha Room, this room is a favorite with its gorgeous brass bed and ornate wood furniture. kimono from my great grandfather hangs on display as well as a geisha. The word geisha consists of two kanji: gei (芸, meaning 'art') and sha (者, meaning 'person' or 'doer'). The most literal translation of geisha in the English language would be "artist" but honestly "artist" does not give an accurate description of all a geisha represented. They have a long rich history that is fascinating to explore but one thing that stands out is their role as protectors of (Japanese) tradition. We hope this room might cause you to pause reflect on your own traditions worth protecting.
