English: Category for Oiran (courtesan) of Japan. Distinguished from ordinary yûjo (prostitutes), they practised multiple skills to entertain their guests with witty conversation and arts in addition to sexual service. In the heyday of the pleasure quarters, the very highest ranking, most popular oiran were known as tayû. Oiran showed off their status with opulent robes, showy hairstyles strewn with expensive hair jewellery, and especially their exceedingly valuable obi, tied high in the front for bold display.
