Originally published: The nightless city, or, The history of the Yoshiwara Yukwaku. Rev. 5th ed. Yokohama : Max Nossler ; London : Probsthain, 1910.

Published in 1899 The Nightless City is a priceless historical document of a study of the Yoshiwara Yukwaku, Tokoyo’s infamous red-light district. 386 pages about traditions, folklore, costumes, erotic practices, price lists, menus, legal documents, laws, hair styles and much, much, more. Looked at as a necessary evil, the district lasted till 1957, when its end was mourned across the world. I am not joking. I mourn its loss as I type. A dumping ground for surplus daughters, a place of slavery and refinement, of sin and beauty, where pleasure was but a business and an art. Any anybody interested in Japanese history, or just the history of sin, should pick up this book.
