Japanese youths know very well what an Oiran is, they are a huge part of Edo culture, especially in Ukiyo-e paintings and Kabuki plays.

Also, you have things like the moive/comic Sakuran, or even the comic/drama JIN that was a huge hit, that feature Oiran as main/prominent characters.

There's also my discussion about this topic with a high school Japanese teacher and some of the students after school about this.
