A print showing the inside of a brothel in Yoshiwara. The finely dressed courtesans are walking around while young attendants are busy with chores, such as one man blowing air into a furnace, as if the brothel is about to open. The clean state of the brothel implies that it caters to sophisticated and wealthy clients. This print is part of a series of five.
