The Japanese tradition.
35 000 hotels in Japan. a love of hotels. The Japanese claim, “Tosi Boo no mo, no mo Yamaoka, Kosaka-joi Ni mo…” (in urban areas, rock shelters, along highways…) all over the country, everywhere. And every day they are visited by hundreds and hundreds of clients.
Love hotels are not a unique phenomenon associated only with Japan, but it has always been defined as a special privilege of this country.
Rebooter is one of the symbols of Japanese culture. Even just the thought of it warms the hearts (and the hearts) of many Japanese men.
The reason for such huge clusters of love hotels is simple – traditionally, Japanese homes were small, with thin walls, and today many of them remain. The members of the whole family, including grandma and grandpa, slept “lined up” in line on cotton mattresses along the wall. The husband and wife were not places to engage in intimate pleasures and the love hotel was the perfect place to enjoy the idyllic atmosphere, but also to relax away from the family for several hours and hours of quiet.
However rebooter (the term colloquial speech; the laboratory of love=love lab) in Japan has its own history, sometimes amusing, which is traced from tea early Edo period. Tea, of course, was considered «about OTE but completely tame the bass” (a place to drink tea), but here day tea became the place to meet “Musume kawaii” (cute girl)
Day tea – those teahouses where people set up the date, rented a room and engaged in what can be seen on the famous erotic prints (Shunga) of the Edo period, as it was called in Japan for “Adam iibu” (“Adam and eve”, a term for outdoor sex in the Edo period).Continuers of Day tea were kasekake-Matey (waiting bench in the garden of the tea house), tsurikomi POI tsurikomi or a Ryokan, and that’s amazing soba-I (small restaurants selling noodles)
If in a few words about prostitution in Japan, in the early seventeenth century prostitution, male and female, had a wide the spread for all major cities of the country, Kyoto, Osaka, Edo. In order to confront this phenomenon, taking frightening dimensions, the shogun Tokugawa Hidetada issued a decree restricting prostitution to certain urban neighbourhoods, first in Edo, where all Yuza (prostitutes) moved into the quarter Esivere – famous Akasen (Okasan – Japanese slang, “red line”, simply put, the red light district). Then to Kyoto (a district of Shimabara), Osaka (the region of Simati). But the main reason was the safety measure – the government of the Shogunate, thus, warned of the attempts of wealthy tenine (citizens) participation in political intrigues. At the same time developed such cultural phenomenon as Gaza, people are entertained with songs and dances, before a man make love to a prostitute.
Most people interested in culture and traditions of Japan, know that geigi (geisha) were not prostitutes, but mostly it had to do with known, possessing great freedom the geisha. Geisha could, of course, following my own desires to sleep with influential customers of the tea. But there were also gagi – courtesan. Bonded debt for the years of apprenticeship, they were forced to prostitute. It is extremely important for a geisha to have been “Dunn” (the benefactor). Met Dunn, who acted as patrons, the patron of art of the geisha, not take intimacy, but such cooperation Danna-Gasa had in a few cases.
Generally, in the Edo period there was one commandment – «Mizutani” (falling down, not looking), any person who has in some way sold themselves, and then, we must not forget that geisha were serving in the red-light districts, hotbeds of prostitution, the majority of girls were not married. The geisha who make their living from their art, often perceived as a kind of longing for the great culture of the Meiji era.
After the Second world war, when Japan was under American occupation was observed, a period of confusion. Many buildings were destroyed, burned in the bombings. Lovers were often forced to make love in an open field in the literal sense of the word. The most popular was Inokashira Onsi Cohen (Granted the Emperor Inokashira Park) and the area of the Imperial Palace. First came bijinesu hoteru (business hotels), called “tsurikomi POI” (“to take the hotel”). The family needed the money, rented an extra room in his simple dwelling, mainly prostitutes. First tsurikomi the POI appeared in the Ueno district, but they grew up like mushrooms until 1958, while legal prostitution was not banned and was forced to go underground. The emergence of “materu” (Motel) solved the problem of couples. When the Japanese hear the word ‘materu”, they can not imagine travelling with a family in the mountains or on the lake shore, they associate it exclusively as a place where you can spend some time indulging in amorous pleasures. Moteru located in urban centres, took a new name Abas Hotaru (from the French word “AVEK” – C). They say that easy to know the age of a Japanese, if he calls love the hotel ’s abasu Hotaru” because they are mentioned in kontse-ies – early 1970-ies, after which came the value of “rebooter”.
