Yoshiwara Courtesans, 1888

Comments - Terrific scene of courtesans strolling through the Yoshiwara in the spring. They wear beautiful kimono with fantastic designs, including a dragon floating in a black cloud with Mt. Fuji in the distance. One beauty's obi features a carp leaping up a waterfall. Blossoming cherry trees and flowering shrubs fill the fenced garden behind the group. Wonderful detail in the lovely kimono fabrics. A charming design.
