The print is also a new one for my catalog. I know 9 bijin triptychs published by Nishimuraya Yohachi about 1825. None bears one and the same title, two beginns with „Totō“, two with „Edo“, one with „Naniwa“ (Ōsaka) and I’m sure that 8 of the tripytchs depict prostitutes from a certain brothel. So the cartouches give the adress of the „house“.
The unread kanji is 圖, the old writing for 図.
Because of the Naniwa print and stilistic evidence I date all the print to 1823/25.
