Nitta Sayuri reveals how she transcended her fishing-village roots and became one of Japan's most celebrated geisha.
Youki Kudoh and Eriko Tamura auditioned for the role of Sayuri but lost out to Ziyi Zhang. However, the casting agents, having been impressed with her audition, allowed Kudoh another chance to audition instead for secondary character Pumpkin, a role... ...

The dance performed by Sayuri during her debut is of a dance style that was invented as a reaction to the tragedy of World War II.
