Story :  Yoshiwara, old Edo's paradise of pleasure, has been reborn in modern-day Tokyo.... In this playground of the powerful, where money rules all, women sell both their bodies and the idea of romance to their male clientele. Thrust into this world is the ingenue Asuka, who's been sold out by her foster parents to pay off their debts. While at first oblivious to the nature of Yoshiwara, she accidentally barges in on a "transaction" between a courtesan and her client. Confronted with her new reality of being bought and sold, she longs to make a break for it... but is there anyone around her she can trust...?!

    My favorite manga of all time
    Everything. This story hits so close to home for me and captures so much of the personal experiences of sex work and the interpersonal connections and complicated emotions of working in such an industry. The author and the artists are so brilliant in their storytelling and I'm grateful for them making it with such compassion. If I could buy the print copies of this I would!!

    This is such a compelling read! Watching the main character grow and overcome her hardships is wonderful. It’s also nice to see a female character who is ready to find the best way to assist herself, but not giving up every principle.

Review Spotlight!

A Wide-Eyed Young Courtesan Vows to Reach the Top as an Oiran!
This wasn't the life she wanted, but now that she's here Asuka is determined to make her own way in the Yoshiwara pleasure district. I'll be following her story every step of the way as she goes from trainee to full-fledged courtesan while trying to stay true to herself!
