Misedashi for Village Okiya:

Shiraito-No-Taki Okiya is proud to announce another Misedashi! We are proud to present Myeongwol Resident as Mizuki 美月 (Beautiful Moon).

A Misedashi is a stepping stone celebration in the career of a Geisha, a time of transition from being a student to a professional working Maiko. Minarai prepare by observation through a process known as Minaraijaya. After a set amount of time watching the activities, arts and banquets of their older sempai, it is time for the minarai to dawn the new title of a Jr. Maiko.

The actual celebration lasts a total of 6 days, with 3 of them signified by the formal crested black kimono and special kanzashi she wears. On day one, the new Maiko visits the various Ochaya, Okiya and Geisha Gakko that have helped her up to this point in her career. In the second stage of her Misedashi (day 4-6) she will switch out her black crested kimono for a colored crested one, still wearing the gold obi.

At Shiraito-No-Taki, we host Misedashi a bit differently, but still with all of the important steps listed above. On day one, the Maiko will make her rounds. On day two, she will host a performance that displays her skills up to this point. On day three, she will have her San San Kudo with her Onesan and have a small party following, that is much like an Ozashiki for special patron and Okiya sisters. The following days (4-6) are a simple break for the new Maiko, in which her special dress signifies her new position to others.

For this Misedashi however, we will also be having a celebratory Asian Pop Performance featuring the Kawaii Dolls and Triii-FX Dance groups! We hope everyone can attend this as well!

We hope you can come congratulate our newest member of our Hanamachi on these days:
