Description: This is one image from a set of 20 which feature women all over Japan with different professions. This particular print depicts a geisha from Edo. In the top left corner Ryogoku is shown, viewed during the summer fireworks festival.

The geisha is about to take out her hand mirror wrapped in kaishi (people in the Edo period used to carry some folds of washi paper with them and it came in handy in all kinds of situations, the washi paper served as a notepad, tissue paper or as wrapping paper like in this case!).

Carver: Endo Kogyoku Printer: Watanabe Yoshiaki

A reproduction published by Ishu Kanko-kai and produced by Kajikawa Kobo probably in the late 1980s or early 1990s.
