Maiko Yukiha has always two shikomi (maiko-wannabes) who follow her steps in Gion Kobu
Yukiha is the youngest and joyful maiko in the Tama okiya. She cares of two of her friends who will become maiko soon, as well. Right now she is teaching them the customs of maiko’s life while they serve her in ordinary situations. Yukiha was a shikomi few months ago too so she knows very well all the struggles of shikomi.
