Woodblock print booklet - confirmation needed - 10-06-2017, 08:29 PM

Hello all,

I recently purchased a ukiyo-e booklet from a japanese auction site, from Edo era as far as I understand.
I would like to know if what I have is matching what I understood from the translated description.
I understood that it was a kind a touristic guide for Edo's district of pleasure.
Inside there are 8 pages depicting scene of everyday life, that doesn't seem clearly related to the subject , hence my question.

Here is the outside cover (may added later by a previous owner as a presentation)


And now the cover/1st page

I would be really grateful if someone could translate or at least confirm that my understanding was correct when I purchased the booklet

Thanks in advance
