Description: This diptych beautifully summarizes the atmosphere of a street on a summer day using the vertical composition. The unusual format of two vertical sheets, kakemono-e (hanging picture) that people used as a hanging decoration, was said to have been first made by Kiyonaga. The drum hanging on the second floor indicates that the women are geisha. While a young man selling fan paper is walking below, the six women's eyes are focused on one young man.

The displayed dimension is each print size.
