Gion Odori 2014: Photoshoot: Maiko ?,Maiko Kanohiro (Kanoya),Maiko Tomitsuyu (Tomikiku),Maiko Fukuharu (Okatome),Maiko Ryouka (Sakaemasa),Maiko Kanoemi (Kanoya) and Maiko Tomitae (Tomikiku)

The two girls in far left will soon debut as maiko Kanohiro (Kanoya okiya) and maiko Haruka (I assume from Okatome)

Haruka is not her Geimyo,but her real name ^^;;

But since she’s from Okatome which hosts Miharu and Fukuharu-if I remember well, her geimyo could easily be Haruka :) But let’s wait a few days to see  ;)
