Yoshiwara, housed in the center of the island, always had a beautiful glow to it…

Hoping to attend one of the banquets held every night in Yoshiwara, you, daughter to a wealthy merchant, enter the pleasure district with the bodyguard, Musashi Takenouchi, at your side.

Once at the banquet, you find yourself presented with men so beautiful you can scarcely believe they’re of this world.

They beguile you with tempting eyes and practiced movements.

One of them lightly whispers loves to you, and as you find yourself drawn to and suspicious of him, you want to see him again. Which one of them is it? Who will you choose?
