    Geishas bonding or something?

    I just saw it on TV...there was a documentary about geishas...and there a geisha had to bond/marrie with her sister. What`s up with that?

    Finding God is not peaceful.
    Searching God isn`t peaceful.
    The thought that God exists is peaceful enough.
    Believe!

    They were probably talking about their Geisha sister.
    This is not a real sister.

    Short explanation:
    An older, more experienced Geisha takes a younger maiko (or even before that) under her wing to teach her the way things work.

    The ceremony of taking someone as 'your sister' is very similar to a traditional Japanese wedding.

    Is it always female taking a female? Could there be male taking a female, female taking a male, or male taking a male?

    There aren't any male geisha.
    The male entertainers are called Taikomochi.

    Ah, I didn't know that. Well, so among the entertainers, is it always female/female bonds and male/male bonds then?

    Female/Female. It's a Geisha tradition. Taikomochi have their own traditions.

    I think the question has been answered. If no one has anything to add anymore I'd like to close this...
