1. Doubt it. My parents say Japanese like mild-mannered girls.
2. Probably.

Only time i ever hear Kyaa! from a girl is when i was sitting at a pratice match for kendo.

and i have not seen a school where you could dress in a casual manner, but i bet there might be one.

I've lived in Japan for about a year.
All the schools I have seen wore uniforms.
Differing from Grade Level to Grade Level and School to School.
Alot of asian schools still wear uniforms.

as for the whole "kyaa~" thing. Its only used by true otakus.
seriously, when i went to school there, I would see girls (especially ones that watch TOO anime)
scream "kyaa~" at a real bishie or pretty boy.

I've got two questions:
1. Does anyone know and can really explain to me what a Geisha do and is?
*I've been confused ever since my friend told me.*

2. Why do some girls I know consider random guys Bishies? or guys consider girls Bishoujos?

coming from someone who lives in japan.
1. sorrie but no i dont.
2. yes all public and private schools are very strict and we all have to wear uniforms. but some uniforms are getting better since professional designers are now creating designs for uniforms but still the same format.

a geisha is like a prostitute. pretty much. you buy her and spend the night.

its reallie hard think of it like getting into the top 20 private universities in any country.
i think to be able to get in you are required to pass 5 entrance exams out of 6 or 7 exams according to the university and you have to pass your highschool exit exam. so in total you'd probably take 9 or 10 tests to get in but who knows whether or not you'd be able to keep up in the school :sweatingbullets:

1.^Umm...I'm not 100% sure about that one, read the comments above.^
2.Maybe every school does, cause in my school, in the U.S., teachers tell us the reason why we wear uniforms is, that it will make it seem as if everyone were equals not better, not worst just equals.

I thought Geishas were entertainers of the arts,
not prostitutes.

Their both, their ronowned for their ability to entertain (ie high class, can talk, sing, and play wierd instruments), which made them uber expensive (they don't exist anymore) but most people go to them with the intention of getting laid.

Kinda hard. It's kind of top heavy there though so while it's harder to get into a top five college in Japan then it is in the US , getting into the 15-20 range is relatively easier--albeit being not easy at all.

Of the Seven National universities, essentially their Ivy league, five of them are considered to be in the Top 100 places for higher education. The top two, Tokyo U and Kyoto U, are as hard to get into as the likes of U of Michigan at Ann Arbor, UCLA, Cornell University, University of Canada at Toronto, and John Hopkins. Even the two easier ones to get into, Kyushu U & Hokkaido U, are the equivalent of getting into the likes of Darmouth in the US.

The top 8-14 are just slightly below the top seven. Tokyo Tech, Tsukuba, Hiroshima, Keio, Kobe, Okayama, etc. are comparable to many of the mid-tier University of Californias (UCSC, UCSB, UCD, UCI), Georgetown, Notre Dame, Nebraska and Virginia Tech.

15-20 which contains Gifu, Gunma, Chiba, Kanazawa, etc. are comparable to the likes of Tulane, Thomas Jefferson, Purdue, San Diego State, and Arizona State.
