This week, I'll be talking about the life of the average city-dweller in the Edo Period. This is a very wide-ranging episode, covering everything from the schools in which young samurai were trained to the kabuki-based prostitution which those same young samurai were absolutely forbidden to patronize (not that it stopped them). I have to say, of all the episodes I've finished up to this point, I've enjoyed writing this one the most. I hope you guys like it too!
