Based on the The myth of ‘The story of the marriage of a horse and a woman’ telling the tragic romance of White horses and yang women, and ‘Yoshiwara’ traditional dish “Sakura nabe”.
Is this work, I drew a feeling that had never come true.
Yoshiwara was a famous yūkaku (pleasure district, red-light district) in Edo, present-day Tōkyō, Japan.
Sakura nabe (Cherry Blossoms Hotpot) is a Japanese traditional horsemeat dish. It origin is said to be in Asakusa/Yoshiwara area of Tokyo during the Meiji period in the late 19th century. Yoshiwara at the time was the red-light district, and there were a few dozen Cherry Blossoms Hotpot Restaurants around the entrance of the district.
