Manga with Info about Shimbara

Hello everyone! I'm new here but I've been watching this forum for about a year and I think this place is great!

Today I was reading the latest volume of my favorite manga, Kaze Hikaru, and I was delighted to see that in the back the author had included a historical note about Shimbara and the women that worked there.

What I think is really interesting is her explanation of why women twisted their collar, especially since I had seen you guys discuss that in this thread here

I scanned the pages for you if any of you are interested ^.^

Lumikettu:

this might be a little off topic, but since there has been talking about manga, I though about asking has anyone read the comic Oni Kudaki? I'm not sure, but this might be a comic only available in Finland thou it's been written in english. It's second part "nightless city" takes the readers to Edo, to the world of the pleasure quarters.

Searching around for a place to read a fan translated version of Oni Kudaiki, I found this video:
