I was wondering if anyone could give me any information relating to the Yoshiwara? Sites would be helpful and any small information that you might know about the district. Anything dealing with the pleasure quarters? thanks

The Yoshiwara moved during its history.
You can see some remnants of it in the Uguisidani, Minowa area.
I think prior to that is was a big further south - though I'm not exactly sure where. There is still a bus stop - between Oji and Asakusa called Yoshiwara Daimon.
Edward Seidenstickers histories of Tokyo have some info.
