      I don't know what her name is... I left before her debut. But I did talk to her "mother". When I asked her name, she told me it hadn't been decided yet because she wouldn't be making her debut until Sept. When did Miyatsu make her debut? I am not familiar with her name. I hope I see her in the spring!

      And thank you, Tayuu-san, for all your kind words and encouragement! Do you live in Japan?

      No I do not live in Japan, I am just in love with the culture. Especially the Maiko and Geiko!
