Explore Japan's "Floating World."
In Edo Period Japan (1615-1868), the "floating world" was a phrase that referred to both the pleasure quarters in major cities and a pleasure-seeking way of life. The most famous of these pleasure quarters was the Yoshiwara-a walled and moated district in Edo(present-day Tokyo) where one could abandon the rigors of daily life in pursuit of sensual delights.
