The inscription on this print tells us that the scene is located in Asakusa Tammbo, a famous gay quarter located in the eastern part of Edo. One can therefore surmise that this is one of the geisha houses for which Asakusa Tammbo was known. Perhaps the hostess and her guest are on the other side of he folding screen, which stands on the left side of the composition. Since the ceramic bowl and towel appear to have been set out for morning washing and brushing teeth, the guest must have spent the night here.
