Sakuo Comment
Do you Know [ochaya] ? It is not shop for drinking tea. It is the place for waiting room to visit to Whore house. By my dictionary, it is said as follow.
[茶屋 chaya] [茶屋遊び teahouse entertainments] [茶屋遊びをする go on sprees in the pleasure quarters]

sakuo imagination
Issa had stayed at whore house. He had pleasant time. Next morning he came back to teahouse with refreshed mood . When he would start there, shower came suddenly. It was refreshing as like his mood." Ah I fresh up "
