10 a.m. - Geisha washing clothes.
During Yoshitoshi's life, the Yoshiwara districts of Shinbashi and Yanagibashi were busy and quite lively. Yoshitoshi's uncle lived in Shinbashi, and Yoshitoshi spent years in the neighborhood. The Yanagibashi district, along the Sumida river, had long been the dominant geisha area but Shinbashi was growing in prominence at the time this series was published. This series presents a chronologic glimpse into 24 hours in the life of the area.
