Mikaeri Willow Reviews
かっては柳があったと思うが、街路樹も柳ではなくつまらない。今の吉原は特殊公衆浴場で有名であるが、見返り柳のような風情がない。 more »I think that there was a willow, but the street tree is not a willow, and it is trivial. Today's Yoshiwara is famous for its special public baths, but it doesn't have a willow-like feel in return.
江戸時代、この付近に吉原の大門があった。吉原で遊んで帰る客は、ここまで来て名残惜しそうに振り返ったことから、見返り柳という名が付いたのだそうだ。その後何代も植え替えられているが今も柳があって、その下に説明板がある。 more »In the Edo period, there was the main gate of Yoshiwara in this vicinity. I hear that the name willow was attached in return because the guest who came here and looked back regrettably to play in Yoshiwara. There is a willow now, and there is an explanation board under that though it has been replanted for many generations afterwards.
