Fashion in the Yoshiwara Pleasure Quarter
Nov 2, 2018 - Dec 2, 2018
Tokyo’s been a fashion epicenter for decades but even back in the 18th and 19th centuries it was known for its colorful and risque style. This exhibition takes a look at the fashions of Yoshiwara — Tokyo’s oldest red light district. Yoshiwara flourished as a prominent pleasure quarter, where customers from all areas of Edo (old Tokyo) society came to visit the various courtesans and ladies of the night. This show focuses on the styles worn then through wood block prints of famed Ukiyo-e artists of the time.
