70820-0007 - Maruyama Brothels


Nagasaki Meiji 1890s Unknown

“Tea House” is the innocent and misleading title printed on this image. It is actually a view of the Nagasaki brothels Kinbaro, the one with the lanterns, and Tamashimatei, the one next to Kinbaro on the far side. These were just two of many brothels in Nagasaki’s Maruyama and Yoriai prostitute quarters. At the height of their popularity, Maruyama and neighboring Yoriai counted no less than 54 brothels with 766 prostitutes. See blog entry.
