It was great pleasure to welcome so many new guests and also the sim patrons. Maiko Kikuyae and Maiko Kikune, although they are still 1st year maikos, served food and drinks quite skilfully, not spilling a drop of sake or soup. Maiko Kikutsuru impressed the ozashiki guests with her talented shamisen play. After every patron and guest has eaten, Maiko Kikumaru danced a dance, called "Only ancient willow tree knows the truth".
