Sayuri moved to New York City, but as of the past 20 years, her visits were further between. The actual story begins with Chapter 1! But Sayuri never spoke to the tape recorder or to the secretary; she spoke always. Now Ive come to see that the truth may be otherwise. What we need is a smart girl, not observing Protists a pretty girl. If Chiyo couldn't, Mameha would just lose, as she already agreed to only take half her normal wages to train Chiyo as her younger sister. There may well be no better record of the strange life of a geisha than the one Sayuri offers.

The letter Auntie received from her from the Hanami-cho section during World War II was the last anyone had heard from her. Hatsumomo may have a successful geisha, but that was. Despite the fact that Sayuri is taken away from her family and deprived of childhood, she is still grateful. Water in the novel acquires qualities of a living being which can influence ones decisions and actions.
