She could just be a musician. Geisha don't soully play Shamisen, it's just a skill they require for entertainment.
Besides that, her hair is inappropriately styled. The modern times are more lenient than the past, because back then they didn't have wigs like today, so their hair was constantly up (Hence the reason why they had to sleep on elevated planks to keep their hair from messing up. THey would only get their hair styled every 1-2 weeks.)

May I introduce myself here? lol

Yeah, I know about the hair, though the idea of Yura wearing like a geisha (and acting/using her geisha skills) always attracted me too much. Unfortunatelly I couldn't put her a decent wig or I'd simply mischaracterize her...

Hmm I understand.
I was just pointing that out though.
I'm the kind of person to gets annoyed when people claim geisha are prostitutes.
But you still did a lovely job. I adore the way you color your pieces.

I adore geisha history, I've studied loads about it. It's probably one of my most favorite aspects of Japan.
It's sad that that profession isn't as common as it used to be during WWI ):
