Comments - Charming scene of three beauties paying a visit to Kameido Tenmangu Shrine in Edo. The beauty at right holds a letter in her hand, smiling as she looks at her companions. At left, a mother carries her young boy on her back, who holds a toy turtle with a man riding on its back, dangling from a slender bamboo pole. A border of clouds separates the figures from a view of the shrine, rising above the treetops, with the famous half moon bridge visible at upper right. An attractive design.
