Butterflies of the Night: Mama-Sans, Geishas


This book takes the reader on a tour behind the scenes of Japan's famous and infamous mizu shobai, the nightlife industry that caters to the sensual needs and appetites of Japanese men. From cabarets and hostess bars to pink salons and soaplands to the most refined geisha entertainment, the author exposes to Western eyes a complete and unadorned portrait of Japanese nighlife, including its patrons and those who serve them, its Yakuza connections, and its crucial role in Japanese life and business.
