After a brief look at the history of Tokyo’s Yoshiwara sex district last week, one of the most surprising things about the place, apart from its sensational selection of soaplands, is the large number of mildly amusing monikers.
From 1970s TV shows.
To 1940s films.
Along with a dash of dandyism.
And this being Japan, a considerable amount of cuteness.
Plus, perhaps inevitably, a few language lapses, whether it be some simple mistakes.
Or something much more mindboggling.
