Red-light district 1 near Nagoya: Gifu Prefecture “Kanezuen”

From here, we will introduce red-light districts that can be reached within 60 minutes from Nagoya.

The first place we will introduce is “Kanazuen” in Gifu Prefecture.
We will introduce the characteristics and atmosphere of Kanazuen town, access to Kanazuen from Nagoya, and its characteristics as an entertainment district.

Kanazuen is one of the three major soap towns in Japan.

Kanazuen is an entertainment district located in Gifu City, Gifu Prefecture, and is one of Japan’s three major soap districts.
Gifu City is the prefectural capital and a satellite city of Nagoya City, making it the commercial and economic center of the prefecture.
It is said to be an “auspicious city” because it is the place where Oda Nobunaga, a famous historical figure, started unifying the country, and because there are many place names with the word “kin” in them.

Its predecessor was the Kanazu Red Light District, which opened in 1888 in Kanazu, Kamikano Village, Atsumi District, and when it moved to its current location in 1950, it became Soap Street, and the current Kanazuen.
Due to its proximity to the station, it is an entertainment district frequented by many men on their way home from work or leisure.

Access [about 20 minutes from Nagoya]

The nearest station to Kanazuen is JR Gifu Station.

A major feature of Kanazuen is that it “employs soap ladies who can heal you.”

It is common to hire a woman with good looks.

● People who are tired from interpersonal relationships.
●Those who want to heal their emotional wounds after breaking up with their girlfriend or partner
