Unfortunately Japan Post has suspended shipping to most countries due to the inability of those countries to deliver incoming mail. As such, until further notice I have reluctantly suspended international shipments. Japanese domestic shipments have no delays. I cannot predict when shipments to international destinations will recommence; it may be several months, and possibly even longer, but in any case artwork purchases will be safely stored here.
|Notes:||Included with each woodblock print is a windowed folder for viewing your print.
This type of print shows a woman of the pleasure quarters. The Edo period red-light districts were officially sanctioned, however, they weren't the playground for just anyone. The popular top-class geishas of the day (known as 'oiran') were depicted in this type of print.
