Please, a cup of tea to you - not only on Sunday

 

Kitagawa Utamaro, The beautiful waitress Okita from the famous teahouse Naniwaya, ca. 1792-93, seen in the East-Asian Museum in Cologne/Germany

 

"Okita was a beautiful waitress at the Naniwaya tea-house near Asakusa Temple in the city of Edo (now Tokyo). When Utamaro created this print of her, she would have been about fifteen years old. Utamaro also included a cartouche in the shape of a poem card in the upper left portion of the print with a poem by Katsura-no-Mayuzumi that further attests to the allure of Okita: "(Resting at Naniwaya tea house) There is not a single person that will not stop to have a look at the beautiful Okita of the Naniwaya” - What this means is that everyone stopped in front of Naniwaya tea house to take look at the beautiful Okita." Our guide emphasised her erotical neck.
