“The crowded quarters of illegal brothels meant that there absolutely no privacy and very little room - at best prostitutes and their clients were divided by sliding doors or a screen.”
In this unusual scene depicted in this print (inspired by Shigenobu´s shungabook series 'Ama no ukibashi - The Floating Bridge of Heaven' ) three different rooms can be seen in perspective.
