This topic is dedicated to all the news about certain Maiko, Geiko even retired girls or news about an Okiya that don't fit the other topics.

Some older information are:

I thought it would be nice to have a happy news thread, sort of mirroring the "sad news" thread, to celebrate the various happenings of the karyuukai. I know we have the erikae, misedashi, and sakkou threads, as well as the individual maiko/geiko threads, so I thought that here we could post stuff outside of those categories? Like, maiko and geiko traveling abroad, going independent, atotori stuff, rumors (though, carefully) etc.

To start it off I will quote Ichisumi-san's post from the "sad news" thread, page 12, celebrating Manoka-san's adoption to the Yamakayo Ochaya:
Ichisumi wrote:
i seem to have forgotten to share this with all of you :oops:

arumukos on flickr:

"And furthermore, Manoka-san seems to be adopted as daughter by the Okaa-san of Ochaya Yamakayo. Therefore she is an heiress of Yamakayo and succeeds as the head of the Ochaya. Soon we are not to see her as Geiko-san in the Ozashiki (;_;). "

I wasn't sure where else to put this. I was thinking the Tanewaka thread, but I wanted to post this because of the "news," not necessarily because of her.

Kyoto Images said here that Tanewaka's Okaasan picked out a brand new hiki and obi especially for her, which I'm assuming means the okiya is doing very well financially. I think her hiki is pretty; the sleeves and hem look like they've been dipped in ink :D Given the prices I have been seeing lately for contemporary, brand new, non-geiko kimono, I was like @_@ damn, lucky her!

Congrats to the Takayoshi okiya :)

Edit: I guess I considered this news because we often saw Taneju and Tanewaka sharing outfits or wearing the same ones over and over, and I was worried that the okiya wasn't doing well. And then Tanefumi had her misedashi, which I took as a good sign that the okiya had the means to be supporting more girls; so I hope things continue to get better for them.

And her friends/family of the hanamachi were present too ! I would have imagined her wearing the uchikake :) .

I hope she will be happy in the future.

I hope you don't mind me reviving this old thread, but it seemed to be the perfect thread for the news below.

Tsunakazu (Gion Higashi), Emiji (Gion Kobu), Fukuzuru (Kamishichiken) and Mameko (Gion Kobu) seem to have been awarded a certificate to thank or congratulate them for their dedication to the traditional arts and/or the hanamachi.
(I got it translated by Google, so forgive me if I got it wrong.)

According to Arumukos-san, Sonoe will not be performing in the Miyako Odori this year because she's pregnant! The baby is expected in June :D!

We should make this "The Happy News Thread" :D!

Arumukos-san said it here:

http:[email protected]/8385675587/

It doesn't seem that she's retiring, so she'll likely be back to work sometime after the baby is born :)

Geiko are allowed to have babys. But they are not allowed to marry.

I remember Liza Dalby writing about at least one geiko who had a baby and returned to work. I believe the okaasan of her okiya in Pontocho had a grown son.
