Tokyo bordello Japanese movie prostitutes

Prostitutes on display in the Yoshiwara district of Tokyo, in a scene from “Tokyo Bordello” 吉原炎上, a 1987 film about a girl sold into prostitution by her father; the film is set in 1908 Yoshiwara. This image, while bizarre and rather disturbing, is based on contemporary photographs of Yoshiwara. See: A walk in the sex park: Yoshiwara and the Tokyo bordello
