PURCHASE A LICENSE

Tokyo Meiji 1890s Kazumasa Ogawa
Susaki (洲崎) prostitution quarters in Fukagawa (深川), Tokyo. Previously a ward, Fukagawa is currently part of Kotoku (江東区), Susaki is now Toyo 1-chome (東陽一丁目). Together with Yoshiwara, this was Tokyo’s most famous red light district (遊客). It vanished when the Anti-Prostitution Law (売春防止法, Baishun Boushihou), came into force in April 1958 (Showa 33). In the back a church is visible.

This image was published in 1895 (Meiji 28) by Kazumasa Ogawa in Scenes of the Eastern Capital of Japan.
