Ordinary schoolgirls or maiko san? Yuka and Ayano graduated junior high school and decided to move to Kyoto okiya, Tama. They have started their apprenticeship of a geisha - maiko stage. Their okasan (“mother”) gave them new professional names and by that, Yuka became Mamekiku san (“Bean Chrysanthemum”) and Ayano - Mamefuji san (“Bean Wisteria”). Their first great art accomplishment is an engagement in Miyako Odori (biggest dance recital in Gion Kobu). Mamekiku was a host of a tea ceremony and Mamefuji danced in the grand finale.
