Floating World

Answer 1

 The Floating World rose from 1600 to 1868 in Japan. The Floating World, natively known as Ukiyo, was the word used to describe the meaningless lifestyle of individuals who sought pleasure in brothels, teahouses, public baths, and theatres. This lifestyle typified many lives of people in Tokugawa society who wanted to escape from the rigid conduct regulations and social responsibilities that the society demanded. The Floating World concept spread from the Japanese heartland to other mainland and island areas. The participants of this culture included the prostitutes, sumo wrestlers, kabuki theatre dancers, merchants, and the Samurai. The Floating World phenomenon arose with the increasing in urbanization, the growth of cities, wealthy people, and lively urban culture.
