Hello,
I don't feel very comfortable starting a new topic, so I decided to introduce myself here :)
I'm Anna and I'm from Poland. I have been observing the IG forums (and some of you on DA ;)) for a while, and than I stumbled upon a link to this forum on youtube. I guess I'm rather well-read when it comes to theoretical and historical aspects of kitsuke and geishas, but I'm pretty clueless about the contemporary Karyukai world, so I'm really into every detail I can get :)

I'm also writing a paper (for bachelors degree) about the image of geisha(/tayu/oiran) in the ukiyoe, in the iki context, so maybe I can find some helpfull info here as well :)

the avatar is the individual picture showing up under your rankimage (so in my case you can see

"Atotori-Moderator-San"
the rank picture
and then the second larger picture (in my case takasuzu as maiko) is the avatar.

we have a thread: here
ichisumi-san is always creating new avatars in this thread that you can use, you can also request an avatar there, maybe of your favorite maiko/geiko? ichisumi will be happy to help you out :D

Minasan Konnichiwa. Watashi wa Habiba Angelina desu. yoroshiku onegai ishimas.
actually i don't speak proper japanese but i've started to learn it. I'm from Russia and I dream to go to Japan for while and I work hard to make my dream come true. I am student and cat breeder. I breed oriental short hair cats and siamese cats. My love to japanese culture started with Sailor Moon, yes it's anime when i was a child and still I'm otaku and J-rock fan. Japan is so small on the map and so big and fascinating from the inside absolutely unique <3 <3 <3
