My fourth book, Now a Geisha, is a dream project that was fifteen years in the making. It has finally arrived!
The official release date is November 9, but it is already available for pre-order on Amazon.co.jp and will be in stock there on November 2. It should also be on bookstore shelves in Japan within the next few days.

If you want a behind-the-scenes look at what happens on the day of geisha’s erikae (the day she makes her debut as a geiko), then Now a Geisha is the book for you.
