One day, in the traditional heart of Kyoto, a rough-hewn country girl named Haruko turns up in search of the impossible. In spite of her impenetrable accent (a mix of deep-Southern Kagoshima and Northern Tsugaru), she begs to be given a chance to become the epitome of cultural sophistication: a Kyoto geisha.
She is accepted under the auspices of Kyono, a good-natured professor of linguistics, who rises to the challenge of helping her. Thus begins a roller-coaster ride as Haruko struggles through the harsh training and stern discipline required to be a geisha in this colorful and entertaining musical comedy!
