Comments - Charming kakemono or vertical diptych of a beauty out for a stroll, smiling happily as she adjusts the collar of her under robe. She lifts the hem of her kimono as she walks, the garment shaded from black to blue green with a border of birds bobbing on the water, edged with a checked print. Her obi reverses from a pattern of yellow bats and a crescent moon to red, a roll of tissues tucked at the waist. Her hair is pulled back into a sleek bun adorned with a comb and a few hairpins, one decorated with a small bat. A lovely design, nicely detailed and colored.
