大阪・飛田新地(Red Light District in Tobita Shinchi,Osaka,Japan)
飛田新地のすべて Part2 | Tobita Shinchi Osaka Japan
Tobita Shinchi (飛田新地), also known as Tobita Yūkaku (飛田遊廓), is the largest brothel district in western Japan. It is in the Sanno 3-chōme area of Nishinari-ku, Osaka. It was one of the largest police-sanctioned red light districts in Japan until 1958, when anti-prostitution laws went into effect. The laws seem to have had little effect for the brothels in the area, however, as they now operate largely under the guise of being "Japanese-style restaurants."
