View of Nakanocho, the main street in the Yoshiwara pleasure quarter with the main gate, Ohmon, in the rear. It is said that cherry trees were transported to this spot in spring, mainly from Angyo. Teahouses line both sides of the street. The tower visible in the distance to the right is the clock tower of Kadoebi-ro built around 1884. Kadoebi-ro was not a brothel but a large store opened in the Meiji Period, and the clock was installed to attract customers. Taken in the mid-Meiji Period.
