Taichiri, Taiyoshi hyakuban, Tobita shinchi (鯛よし 百番 大阪), Osaka, Japan

Tobita Shinchi area is a prostitution quater in Osaka city. This area was established in early 1900s and kept the Old Shunga world. The classical style buildings were stand along the streets. Each buildings has wide entrace combined with show window and called as Ryotei where the staff will serve some foods and alcohol beverage. There were a old lady keeping the shop and a young lady who will comfort customer, in each shop. The blight white light illuminated the two ladies in the shops. The young ladies had been made up as a doll and shined with red to pink light. The customers were only male and the service side were only female. The border amoung shop and street showed the complete gender difference in this area; inside are female and outside is male. The female customer had not been able to walk around this area. The Tai-yoshi was located in this area.
The building of Tai-yoshi hyakuban was classical Ryotei style. This restaurant was the real restaurant where serve some fish dishes without some comfort service. The interior was motive as Ryu-guu palace (palace in the ocean in "Urashima taro" popular nursery tale). The wooden building was decorated with some paints and wood work. The luxury but old fashioned atmosphere reminded us the completely separated world from the other place of Osaka. The atmosphere and building was very lovely.
