Comments - Charming scene of elegantly dressed courtesans in a room overlooking the water. In the center, a beauty and a young girl kneel beside a go board, the woman smiling happily as she chats with her companion, who stands in the garden. The standing woman wears a blue kimono shaded to lavender with a border of descending geese. A beauty at right holds a roll of paper, her robe decorated with toy balancing dolls, while the woman behind her paints a verse on a folding fan, a brush in hand. An attractive spring design with a blossoming cherry tree at left.
