Hi everyone,

I've been a long time lurker for a while. I registered but I never really posted until today. Nice to say hi to everyone finally!

I first learned about maiko and geiko when I was assigned to read Memoirs of a Geisha for freshmen year of high school. Then I started reading up on geisha on the internet and imagine the horror when I realized that Golden's book was not 100% accurate. From then on, I followed the karyukai for a while (around Satsuski's misedashi). I stopped after school got too busy and I'm back on the wagon again! Now Satsuki is now a geiko! It's been a while ^^

Hello Nekotail, welcome to the forum!

Some of us, including myself, were also introduced to this culture due to "Memoirs of a Geisha". :)

Feel free to join us in the conversations here. :)

Welcome! I've been an on-again-off-again geisha fan too. Something always rekindles my love and I force myself to make time for it. I'm glad to see you posting finally :D it's great to see new life in the forums.

So, who are your favorite geimaiko and why? :D

Yup, I always catch myself sneaking a peek, even when I'm studying for tests.

My favorite maiko are Mamefuji, Komako, Mamekiku, and Marika. Mamefuji is just so elegant at such a young age. It's hard to believe she's only begun her second year. Komako just has a certain charm to me. I like Mamekiku for her sweetness. She might not as popular as Mamefuji, but I think Mamekiku has her own individual charms. Marika is just adorable

My favorite geiko are Satsuki, Toshimana, and Toshikana. Satsuki seems hardworking and so friendly to me. She reminds me of my roommate actually! Toshimana always caught my eye because she always had a serene look to me, even when she was a maiko. I also heard she is a great dancer. Toshikana is just a graceful beauty.

I hope I didn't ramble too much ^^"
