Memoirs of a Geisha Character Journal

First Entry:

Chairman Iwamura

Dear Journal,

Today I had the most peculiar encounter. This afternoon, as I was nearing the

Minamiza Theater to see the Kabuki play, Shibaraku after lunch, I met a young girl no

Nobu what I witnessed I just hop that everything will work out.

I am going to try to talk to Sayuri this coming week about hopefully becoming her

dana. The thought that this may finally come to pass greatly excites me for I have been

waiting many years for this. I have been carefully watching her and taking care of her

from afar and now I can finally tell her. All of my dreams will come to pass very soon and

I am very excited for what the future holds.
Third Entry:

even taken her on a few business
