bureaucratic work), have the same , some lost all economic growth and turned to
farming, they head to the city (great equalizer: hide your status or elevate your
status)

deposit money w ith them and get a promissory note,

books, manuals for painting, lyrics, poems, broad sheets, rating books -> rating of
cour tesans, kubuki
-Kubuki – rises and develop in to a major business (only in the city, not country)
-Growth of literacy
-Male on male love culture was very popular, credited to the publishing industry
-Popular segment due to the literacy of the people
