Parading Pounded Rice Cakes - Wonderful scene of young palace beauties watching a festival parade from a verandah. Giant mochi or sticky rice cakes on floats are paraded through the streets in celebration of the New Year, pulled along by dozens of men dressed in matching robes. The two girls gesture and smile at the antics of a group of entertainers dancing about at left, one of them wearing a lobster atop his head. Lovely color and detail in the elegant kimono fabrics, with delicate embossing on the white trim. A charming look at this festive holiday celebration.
