Title: Drawing of Man on Horseback

Travellers are approaching a resting post, probably Kusatsu, a place famous for a rice dumpling filled with bean paste, ubagamochi. The writing says that even a horse knows where a good ubagamochi is. The figures are very much in the style of Hokusai, Hokuba’s teacher.
