IN EDO, THE LICENSED QUARTERS were not the only places of prostitution – there were many more. For instance along the Sumida river banks were the "pleasure boats" often shown in ukiyo-e prints where clients were served. And along the river banks strolled the "street-walkers". They were easily recognizable by the mats that they carried under their arms, ready to satisfy a client on demand. They were called tsujigimi, "mistress of the street corner" and represented the lowest class among the hierarchy of Japanese prostitutes.
