Congrats to the Eri-kae of Mamechiho and Kikuyu!

Post  AnaIkimaru on Wed Dec 30, 2009 9:19 pm

Two very reknowned maiko turned their collars to become official geiko- Congratulations to Mamechiho of Gion Kobu, and Kikuyu of Miyagawa-cho! As far as I recall, I believe Mamechiho came in at Number 2 in her district this year as a maiko, very well done! Kikuyu is well-known all over the world as a result of the documentary of her time as a shikomi (shee-ko-mee) apprentice through to her misedashi (mee-say-dah-shee) debut. I'll pose her documentary in another thread for you all to watch if you haven't already.


You can see photos taken by Flickr user ewoodham here- she's taken some great shots of both of these girls. She also has a great Flickr photostream you may enjoy of her stays in Japan!
