Maiko on Book Covers

I know it is highly possible that no one can answer my question but I am asking anyways. Any idea who these 3 maiko might be? The first one is from a book called Japanese style, printed in 1987. The last two are from a travel guide, published 1991. By accident I noticed today when browsing Amazon that the other maiko is in another book cover, even in the same outfit and decided to scan these. Maybe the photos are from a same photoshoot?

Fumikazu-san:

I think the first maiko might be retired geiko Yuiko.
And the second one might be the now natori geiko Mameka.

But wasn't Yuiko still a maiko in 1998 :? ? These photos are at least 19 years old, maybe even more (I don't know the exact age, only the time the books were published). Mameka was maiko in 1990 so that is possible (it would be great if that would be she :smil3: ).
