Comments - Charming kabuki scene of the beauty Osen strolling through the street, a blue and white robe tucked under her arm. She pauses to smile at the young man behind her, who stands next to a water seller's display with cups and a large bucket of water nearby. At right, a plant vendor stands between two platforms holding potted morning glories, a yoke in one hand. Straw-wrapped sake barrels are stacked behind him with the brands prominently displayed. A handsome design with wonderful detail and soft bokashi shading in the night sky.
