Tobita-Shinchi is a surviving brothel district located in the Sanno 3chome area of Nishinari-ku, Osaka. Tobita-Shinchi had been one of the largest police sactioned redlight districts in Japan until 1958, when anti-prostitution laws went into effect. Since that time, it seems to have still been business as usual for the brothels in the area, however, they operate largely under the guise of being "Japanese-style restaurants".
