Product Description:
LIMITED EDITION - Beautifully detailed doll wearing a traditional Kimono gown intricately designed in red and gold. As with all Madame Alexander products, you can expect fine detail and quality. History of Asakusa Ichimaru - Ichimaru grew up in Japan with eleven siblings under harsh conditions. She left her family at the age of fourteen or fifteen to work at a geisha house. She spent much of her early years working at a hot springs spa in Asama, located in the Nagano Prefecture as an oshaku waitress. One time she was asked to sing by one of her customers, she was terribly embarrassed at her inability to sing and vowed to improve her skills. At the age of nineteen she moved to Tokyo and joined the Ichimatsuya Okiya, and took on her new name, Asakusa Ichimaru. Ichimaru died at the age of 90 in 1997, leaving a legacy of traditional folk music for modern day Japanese. Her legacy continues to live on in the form of a generous donation of kimono, obi and memorabilia by Mrs. Fumi Suzuki, a friend of Ichimaru, to the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria in Canada and also by donations given to the Iida Museum in Nagano. The May-June 2003 issue of the magazine Arts of Asia contained a twenty-page article about Ichimaru, which included an eight-page spread Source: Wikipedia
