匿名からの質問: Do you know what's "-tomo" meaning? I love Ichitomo-chan but I don't understand her name. I just know thaht Ichi meaning "town" but I want to understand! Please help me T.T Btw your blog is wondeful!

Just take a look at my page about names: http://geisha-kai.tumblr.com/names :)

"Tomo“‘s meaning really depends on the kanji used. In example, current maiko’s Ichitomo (市知) name means "town’s wisdom".

Gion Kobu: geiko Chisako, maiko Satsuki and Katsutomo

Gion Higashi: geiko Tsunekazu and Tsunemomo, maiko Ryouka and Tomitsuyu

Pontocho: geiko Tomoyuki, maiko Momifuku

Miyagawacho: geiko Toshikana, maiko Kimihiro and Toshimomo

Kamishichiken: geiko Ichiteru, maiko Katsune and Katsuna
