it's great to see a new member. do you have a favorite geiko or maiko? How did you become interested in the karyûkai?
Thanks! Yes I really love Maiko Umeno Umechie and my favorite Geiko probably has to be Geiko Miehina. I started in high school. A Friend of mine was reading Memoirs of a Geisha--I gave it a shot but quickly learned how terrible the writer was and how misinformed. I started to try and do my own research; 7 yrs later I'm still learning a LOT lol
