In Japan, geishas are entertainers who sing, dance, play the stringed shamisen, and amuse their clients with traditional games and witty banter. The first geisha were actually male. The female geisha, who appeared more than two hundred years ago, have come to be viewed worldwide as a symbol of Japanese refinement and exoticism. Real geishas train for many years and they are not prostitutes.
