An Imperial Concubine’s Tale Scandal, Shipwreck, and Salvation in Seventeenth-Century Japan

Review From User :

Fascinating tale of a sex scandal that rocked the emperor's court in Japan in the seventeenth century - just as James I was on the throne in Britain. It involved courtiers and court ladies slipping away to small rough huts on the outskirts of town and coincided with the beginnings of the kabuki theatre. Beautifully told and documented.
