Images of the local in popular culture narrations

Popular culture often deceives with its apparent insignificance; neverthelesss, it carries opinions and attitudes of those who produce it. In my article I look closely at an episode of a TV series, “The women at the end of the world” entitled “Geisha from Kyoto” to point out that, just like global tourism, travel TV shows are entangled in postcolonial politics of representing other cultures. In this particular TV show an encounter of what is local with western culture industry results in a feedback which privileges certain images of femininity.
