TAMAya AND OTHER HOUSES IN THE NEW YOSHIWARA
One of the names of businesses that comes up
often is TAMAya, the House of Jewels. Tamaya was know for its prime
location on Edo Machi I-Chô-Me (the first street on the right
after the entrance, see the map below.) in the New Yoshiwara in Edo
Very little is found in English about this house
or any other for that matter, but some are listed in "The
Nightless City" written in 1899. Interestingly TAMAya is not
found in the listings by the time the book was written and it is
also missing in some of the reference books of the latter part of
the1800´s, but it is still listed on the map of 1846. TAMAya
appears a lot in prints though, so somehow it must have been very
busy promoting itself.
