DESCRIPTION

In Mr.  Haruhisa Yamagushi Words “I seek out “ OIRAN” to express the image  of beauty because I believe in the art of simply knowing how the Oiran woman wears a Kimono. OIRAN came into the world during the  Edo period (1600-1868) which closed foreign trade for 260 years and that’s when Oiran flourished in Japan. The color and shape of the Kimono is a flower that covers up a woman, the white makeup it's a release from the daily chores of life. I have tried to document by rediscovering the true art of Oiran from Historical research.The  real Oiran doesn’t exist today.”
