    • Synopsis
    • His ultimate goal is… to play a special geisha game!!
      Kimihiko is an ordinary office worker who works in a food company in Tokyo. He is normal in most ways, but one thing that is not normal about him is that…he is extremely fanatic for geisha girls! He goes to Kyoto all the way from Tokyo just to take photos of geisha girls and put them on his website. Yet, he still has never been to a geisha house…
      For Kimihiko, his first encounter with Geisha Girl was destiny. It was more than 10 years ago, when he was still a high school student and went to Kyoto for a school trip. He lost his way and asked a geisha for help. It was the first time for him to see a geisha girl, and he had never seen such a beautiful girl before.
      While he heard geisha girls playing a special geisha game and laughing cheerfully, he decided. “I will go to a Geisha House when I grow up!”
      One day, a chance came his way. He got transferred to the Kyoto branch of his company! He dumped his girlfriend Fujiko and happily moved to Kyoto. The highest bar for entering a Geisha House is that the price is expensive, and there is a traditional unwritten rule of “No first-timers”. He worked really hard to earn money and somehow convinced his big boss to take him to a Geisha House.
      He finally went into a Geisha House and was about to play the special geisha game he had dreamt of for a long time. Then suddenly, a professional baseball player, Naito, who was totally drunk, stormed into his room. Naito is a regular customer at the geisha house, and his social status and income are incomparably higher than Kimihiko’s. He said to Kimihiko “With money, I can do anything!”
      Because of him, the dream was over and Kimihiko failed to play the geisha game…
      Kimihiko decided. “I will become a professional baseball player and get even with him!”
      In Tokyo around the same time, Kimihiko’s ex-girlfriend Fujiko also made up her mind. “I will become a geisha girl in Kyoto!”
      People’s dreams, jealousy, pride etc…come and go in the geisha world… You never know what will happen next. A hilarious story now begins!
