It is said that the name of "Chushojima" was born because I build a mansion in the island among arms of a river of Uji River, and Yasuharu Wakisaka who worked as 中務少輔 in the Bunroku year lived. Because a Chinese-like name of 中務少輔 was "Ministry of Home Affairs", Wakisaka was called "Ministry of Home Affairs (ちゅうじょう) state". I came to be called "Chushojima" for the reason called the island of the mansion to live in of "Ministry of Home Affairs" . Besides, the place name in connection with a former daimyo's mansion is common in Fushimi.
The Fushimi Port whole area was damp ground until Momoyama era. Samurai residences came to stand by Hideyoshi Toyotomi having assumed Fushimi Castle an administrative office, but it was in the first half and went to ruin in the Edo era because the Edo Shogunate assumed Fushimi Castle an abandoned castle. On the other hand, importance in the transportation by water increased as Kawaguchi again when the Takase River was excavated, and Kyoto and Osaka were bound together. The red light district that was under Fushimi Castle is moved and comes to prosper afterwards.
Because it was a famous spot of liquor, a lot of people who came to play were near Uji River again and were an entertainment district at the same time as Chushojima where the convenience to transportation was good was a red light district and produced a talented geisha as I exceeded Gion. Keihan train was inaugurated in last years of Meiji and came to prosper more and more.
It was used to an officer, the soldier of the 16th division which established the headquarters in Fukakusa early in the Showa era, but I closed the role as the red light district by the Anti-Prostitution Law (1958) on March 15 in 1958, and it was only in an entertainment district. I was divided and was opposed to a teahouse group and the rooming house group of the student partner over a change of job at first, but I calmed and I came to gradually decline and put an end to the history that had a long it as the entertainment district afterwards in (1970) in 1970. It is a normal residential area, and an entertainment district, the building of the red light district times are left just a little now.
It is known to the stage of the novel "enclosure" of born Katsumi Nishiguchi for this ground even that it was.
