It's a man's world. Shimamura, an artist, comes to this snowbound town to rejuvenate himself. He connects with Komako, a geisha he met on a previous trip, and it seems like love. She's the foster daughter of a local family, almost engaged to the family's son Yukio, now dying of consumption. He's tended by his sister Yuko who's angry at Komako for abandoning her brother. Shimamura returns to Tokyo but promises he will be back soon. In anticipation of his return, Komako breaks with her patron and her family loses their home. Complications arise when Shimamura doesn't come back as promised. Then Komako discovers that he and Yuko knew each other in Tokyo. Can Komako escape destiny? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A geisha's life is difficult.

The winter snow scenery is spectacular! Keiko Kishi who plays the geisha is quite beautiful and does a splendid job acting in a difficult role. The film takes place in the 1930's at a mountain spa. It is well known that the geishas who work at spas are are more likely to be prostitutes than are the geishas who work in Kyoto. In this story sex causes complications which are less likely to occur if the relationship of the geisha was just as a singer and dancer.

Ryo Ikebe who plays the male lead is married and is the strong silent type. Needless to say the poor geisha hasn't got a chance of winning him.
