“To learn kindness after so much unkindness, to understand that a little girl with more courage than she knew, would find her prayers were answered, can that not be called happiness?

After all, these are not the memoirs of an Empress, nor of a Queen.

These are Memoirs of Another Kind.”

~ SHIZUKO HOSHI – Sayuri Narration “Memoirs Of A Geisha”


My favorite scene from the movie is when the Chairman notices a crying Chiyo, and buys her flavored ice just to see her smile; which he says is a gift to him! He gives her his handkerchief with some money and at that moment she resolves to become a Geisha; changing her destiny forever.  She runs through the Torii gates to a Shinto, rings the bell and puts the money into the red box; spending it on a prayer, not fish or rice. She implores to see him again.  In time the young Chiyo adopts the name Sayuri and never gives up hope of reuniting with the Chairman.

When I first started blogging and designing in Second Life (around December 2012) I have been in forever search of the perfect Torii which depicts the perfection of the true Fushimi Inari Gate Shrine in Japan.  There has not been one until now!

Many may wonder why I say that.  But once you set Harshland’s “Inari Torii” out for yourself you will understand. 

Kadaj Yoshikawa produced this flawless shrine for Enchantment.  The full set includes 3 color variations and an added surprise of his animesh Spirit Foxes!

After all these years of setting out scenery to depict a story that has forever touched my heart, I have yearned to create a similar photo of Chiyo’s pitter-patter footsteps.  Thank you, Kadaj!  You have no clue how this touches my heart!

(I plan to use his Spirit Foxes for my next review.)

The lovely Armonia Décor “Farol Asian Paper Lamps” are inside with their “Maravilla de Oriente” set which does include a stunning “Dragon” statue on a marvelous base.  I have set this item aside for my next photograph!  I really didn’t want to take away from my “Memoirs of a Geisha” style photograph I did today; so please come back soon to see the next review!

In order for me to initiate the true Geisha feel for my photo, I selected a most dramatic and intricate ensemble from irrISIStible!  Who else?  She never leaves anything out!  Her “China Express” Kimono full set might just stay on my little avi body for the next week!  I already ran to set up at an upcoming event and was asked “who’s outfit is that?”!  I do get this question many times as I fly around Second Life wearing her goodies!  Bravo to you, Isis!  Another master piece!
