The Hira-Sei Restaurant at Fukagawa - Beautiful design of a beauty arriving at a the Hira-Sei Restaurant at Fukagawa, the evening sky dotted with softly glowing fireflies. She pauses outside a sliding shoji screen to look up at them, lifting the hem of her kimono with one hand. Another woman relaxes inside, leaning back with a pipe in her hand and a fan in the other, enjoying the cool night air. Fine detail in the architectural setting, the scene nicely framed by the delicate branches of a willow tree.
