Not true.  There is no requirement of this.  Is there more respect tied to the fact of being a maiko first, yes.  But as I said, it isn't a requirement.

That is not the same Umeha--the maiko is from Gion. Umeha the geiko is from Kamishichiken.

Also, I believe her name IS Umeha. Melissa accidentally put Umewaka when she first posted the picture.

Actually, some enter the flower and willow world too late to be maiko, but these tend to be jikata geiko rather than dancers. I wonder if an exception would be made for an older dancer to go through the maiko stage?
