I've always loved the geisha/maiko culture. Are there any manga I should check out that have this as a central theme?

I've read Mademoiselle Butterfly. Er, it sorta fits.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
She leaves that life before she gets into it, honestly.

It's still a good read, though.

I haven't read the manga but seen the movie adaptation,
Spoiler (highlight to view)
but I think it's not really a geisha/maiko manga but they're more like courtesans or high-profile prostitutes.
