Nobu comes to find Sayuri in her new job making kimonos and advises her that he needs her to help him get a deal with some Americans to re-build his business. She agrees and goes to Mameha to convince her to help her once again become a geisha. They entertain the Americans and Nobu expresses his feelings to Sayuri who refuses because she loves the Chairman who showed her great kindness when she was a little girl. Later, the Chairman comes and finds her and tells her he remembers her and that all this time he's paved the way of her becoming a geisha (ever since she was Mameha's student). Sayuri and the Chairman express their love for one another.
