As she grows older, her stunning beauty attracts the vindictive jealousy of Hatsumomo. She is rescued by and taken under the wing of Hatsumomo"s bitter rival, Mameha. Under Mameha"s mentorship, Chiyo becomes the geisha named Sayuri, trained in all the artistic graces and social skills a geisha must master.
