(this is a purely hypothetycal discussion,please don't understand me wrong.It's more of a game,I am aware none of us is able to become a maiko,so this is an ''if you could'' talk)

....What okiya would you choose and why ? And who would you most likely want as your big sister ? Who would you NOT want to be your oneesan?
Pick one okiya and oneesan from each kagai :chuuu:

Well, my favourite okiya from Gion Kobu is either Tama or Tsurui, so Sayaka or Tsuruha is perfect oneesan for me ^^
For Kamishichiken: Ichi okiya and I'd pick Ichiteru.

I'd also probably choose Tsurui okiya(out of GK okiyas). Kyoka would be my perfect oneesan. I thought,she seems like a really kind person. From what I've seen on KoiMaiko website,even while her and Satsuki are alone,she acts kind and sister-like.
Out of Kami-okiyas ,I'd choose Umeno and Umeha as oneesan (seriously,who wouldnt?!She's awesome!) or Daimonji with Katsuru or Katsuya for oneesan.
In GH I'd pick Shigenoya okiya and Tsunekazu or Tsunemomo as oneesan,even if I'm not sure why,I just like them.
I don't know much okiyas in Pontocho so I'd skip, but in Miyagawa-cho I'd choose Shigemori (wouldn't it be great to have Kofuku as oneesan?),or Hanafusa (Kikune,Kikuyu!I'd be happy just to see any of them,let alone have them as oneesan)
Also, do you guys think it's better to have oneesan who is an elderly geiko, or a younger one ? (example geiko of 45-50 or geiko of 25-30?

For Gion Kobu I'd go with Tama and Tamaha as onesan since she's very popular and experienced (and has taught the best!).

In Kamishichiken I'd go with Daimonji and Katsue as onesan (she's my favorite, of course I'd pick her ^^)

Gion Higashi and Pontocho are like foreign ground; I have no idea who belongs where, so I won't toss that in.

For Miyagawa Cho... that's kinda hard. I like Shigemori since they're new and their okasan seems to be raising some lovely maiko and geiko. On the other hand, being a Toshi girl in Komaya might be interesting. From Shigemori I'd go with Fukuhiro as onesan since she has the most experience and in Komaya I'd go with Toshihana since she seems like such a lovely geiko. Toshiteru would be cool, but I'd dwarf her by so much ^^;

Since I know practically nothing about geiko (like their true personality) besides names and the way they look, I am going to base my choices only on their names. I love those rarer name lines they have and would like to see them continue in the future too.

I am not sure if Raiha is still working, but I would love to have her as oneesan. She has such unique name and I would be so sad to see the line vanish from Pontocho.

In Kamishichiken I would pick Tamayuki, I want to see more Tama-geiko and maiko there!

Others are harder to decide.. Maybe Danka from Gion Kobu, Haruyu from Miyagawacho and Hinagiku from Gion Higashi.

If I were to be a maiko-san I would go to Miyagawa-cho because it has that family atmosphere I love and it seems the girls know each other and are BFF.
I would go to Komaya okiya because I absolutely love each Toshi- girl :) Anyway, if would like a geiko from another okiya to be my Oneesan, maybe Fukuhina or Fukuteru :)
If I were to be a maiko in Komaya I would love to be named Toshiyuki ^^

Oh this one is easy for me:

For GK: Odamoto and Katsumi (only when she becomes Geiko-san, of course)

For K: Umeno with Umeha

For M: Shigemori with Fukuhiro

And then I don't know about P and GH :P

For Gion Kobu I'd pick either Fukushima or Tama as the okiya and either Tsuruha or Ayano as my oneesan
For Kamishichiken I'd pick the Daimonji okiya and Katsuru as my oneesan (She seems so lovable and friendly! ^^)
I don't know about any okiya in Pontocho but for an oneesan I'd pick Ayano, Mitsuna or Ichiemi I can't decide! :giggle:
I have no idea which okiya or oneesan I'd pick for Gion Higashi :oops:
And finally for Miyagawa-Cho I'd pick Shigemori as my okiya and Kofuku as my oneesan :D

For GK: With Katsumi I would like my geimiyo to be Katsumiyo :D

For M: With Fukuhiro I would like it to be Fukumana :fresh:

I like this thread. ^^


If I were to become I maiko, I would join...

Gion Kobu: Nishimura (oneesan Makiko) or Kineya yakata (oneesan Sonoe)
Gion Higashi: Shigenoya yakata (oneesan Tsunemomo)
Kamishichiken: Umeno (oneesan Umeha) or Daimonji yakata (oneesan Katsukiyo - she's so cool!)
Miyagawacho: Takemoto (oneesan Fukuha), Takayoshi (oneesan Taneju), Horiyae (oneesan Fukuteru) or Shigemori yakata (oneesan Fukuemi)
Pontocho: No idea about the yakata, but I'd like Shinako to become my oneesan, just so I can continue the Shina- line.

And because I also like Reihana's question about geimyo, I'll write those down too. :P I'd like my geimyo to become Momiko/Sonozuru (GK), Tsunechiyo (GH), Umeyuki/Katsumiyo (K), Fukuchizu/Tanezuru (M) and Shinami (P).
