This work is a thing to have drawn the scene of Osaka. Osaka prospered as a town of commerce because it was near from Kyoto that was the center of Japan in old times. Therefore, people in this district are glib. It has the dialect with high aggressiveness known most in Japan named Osaka dialect. It is said that the stone actually flies if you said the word "The stone flies". So, Osaka is a heartland of the comedy of Japan.
The showplace in Osaka is a lot. Tower in Osaka castle/Tsutenkaku/ "The Tower of the Sun,"(1970/Taro Okamoto).....etc.
The meanings of " Godairiki " are five great bodhisattva who defend Japan. Literal translation:"Five Great Power" It was used a lot as magic because of reaching of the letter in Edo period safely. After the letter is shut, it is written "Godairiki". Moreover, it would write, "Godairiki" in personal belongings by the woman, and come to assume the proof of the virtue to the man.
The meaning of " Tenbeni " is red color painted on the upper part of the letter from the YU-JYO (prostitute). Literal translation:"heaven(top edge) red(lip rouge)"
