Geisha

Popular G501, 1951

From the back:

Her name was O-Kita…
At four she was kidnapped and sold into a teahouse. Her only schooling was in the arts of sensual pleasure-giving. And then one day, as if in a dream, the American surgeon came into her life…
This is their strange and moving story… the story of a love affair consummated amid idyllic splendor, and shattered by a barbaric treachery that was always between them.
