We enjoyed watching a historical musical called Haruranran in a Warabiza theatre.  This musical is based on historical events about Haru-chan. She married a military officer at the age of 22 and after her husband's death her life was totally changed. She was managing Akita's first beauty salon and decided to open a Geisha training school as well. Most significantly, she became involved in local women's rights movements. 15135812_1007020332757715_1975777682517925641_n
