Original Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Annual Events in the Floating World: The Third Month

Comments - Charming scene of beauties visiting the seashore in the third month. In the center, a beauty holds the hand of a young boy who carries a basket of clams under his arm. Two women follow behind, their own basket hanging from a bamboo pole carried between them. In the distance, the shore is crowded with people digging for shellfish at low tide. One of the figures tumbles to the ground as a stingray bites his hand, an amusing detail. A handsome depiction of everyday life in the Edo era.
