Dressed in elegant kimono, the beauties relax with their small attendants on a richly patterned floral carpet. The courtyard below is crowded with visitors and beauties who stroll along the boulevard under the pink flowering trees. A lively, bustling scene with attractive color and a wealth of detail.
